The Laboratory of Energy Conversion and Storage (LabX) is a facility founded to firmly sustain the modelling activities of the GECOS group on full-size energy conversion systems and energy storage systems, leveraging over 15 years of experience in the previous Laboratory of Micro-Cogeneration. Dedicated test rooms are available to test both complete and demo units. A strong expertise in operation management and data analysis characterises all LabX activities.
This brand new laboratory is located at the Department of Energy of Politecnico di Milano and is supported by the collaboration of many Divisions within the Department (i.e., Energy Systems, Electric, Fluid Machinery). Its purpose is to test complete micro-grids characterised by many diverse power generation and storage systems. It is supported by the collaboration with many industrial partners.
The SolarTech Lab is a facility at the Department of Energy of Politecnico di Milano which aims at reproducing real-life installations of diverse solar technologies. Testing, performance monitoring and maintenance strategies are addressed for both conventional and innovative photovoltaic, thermal and hybrid designs.
Specialised laboratory in the field of highly efficient, low environmental impact energy technology. Activities include applied research, testing, development and technology transfer. The Laboratory is supported by Politecnico di Milano and forms part of the Emilia Romagna High Technology Network.
In the Fluid Test Laboratory at University of Brescia, innovative working fluids and mixtures for power generation and conditioning systems are experimentally tested to assess their thermal stability limits. The laboratory provides qualified scientific research and technical consulting.
