The Solar-Thermal Energy Exploitation Research (STEER) group is a multidisciplinary and inter-institutional group that was created with the objective of studying and developing novel technologies based on solar energy absorption and its exploitation as a clean and renewable energy source.
The present research proposal has the main goals of investigating the fundamental aspects and developing high-performance devices based on phase-change heat transfer processes applied to the use of solar energy.
