We believe solar energy to be the key for changing the world and making it more sustainable for future generations.
High temperature solar-thermal processes
In today’s world, the demand for energy is continuously increasing and the resources of our planet are already under intense pressure. The majority of the total energy consumption of the world still comes from fossil fuels. The burning of fossil fuels produces billions of tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year that contributes to global warming causing adverse effects that are devastating and irreversible. In arctic regions glaciers are melting, leading to potential flooding of those areas. In regions south of the equator, many locations are drying out due to the increase in temperature levels, causing major negative effects on agriculture and leading to resource scarcity.
We urgently need to change the way we produce and live. The first step is to change the source of our energy, where the Soliterm PTC technology comes into play.
We need to utilize the renewable energy sources more and the most promising source of energy is the sun, because it is a never-ending resource, that delivers energy at the same levels without major fluctuations.
We can supply clean energy, whether it is solar cooling, heating, steam generation or electricity generation as well as desalination.
The Soliterm Group was established in 1999 by our CEO Dr. Ahmet Lokurlu, in Aachen, Germany. With engineering and R&D works in Germany and a production facility in Turkey, our company is a multi-level establishment. In order to meet the rising demand for renewable energy supply, Soliterm introduced the world’s first robotic and fully automated production unit in Ankara, Turkey.
