Liten is a major European research institute and a driving force behind the development of the sustainable energy technologies of the future. The institute is spearheading the EU’s efforts to limit dependency on fossil fuels and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in three key areas: renewable energy, energy efficiency/storage and development of materials.
Our platforms, sophisticated tools for industry & the scientific/technical infrastructure/expertise to overcome technological hurdles
Liten's research teams work across a vast portfolio of renewable energy technologies. Cutting-edge photovoltaic technologies are developed at INES, the French National centre for solar research and R&D with Hydrogen and Biomass activities being managed from the LITEN's main site in Grenoble, Rhone-Alpes.

After the success of the SFERA-3 training course in France (CNRS), we are pleased to present the 2nd Training for Industries course with the topic optimization of CST plant output by optical and thermal characterization and target-oriented O&M.
This course is organized by DLR and CIEMAT and will take place at the Plataforma Solar de Almería (PSA) in Tabernas, Spain from March 30th – April 3rd, 2020. It is designed for engineers, researchers and representatives from European CSP industry and companies.
For more information and application please visit https://sfera3.sollab.eu/event/csp-free-training-course-for-industry-optimization-of-cst-plant-output-by-optical-and-thermal-characterization-and-target-oriented-om/.
The SFERA 3 training courses for CSP professionals focus on the main CSP technologies and aim at facilitating the communication between European researchers and industry as well as enhancing the transfer of know-how and innovations. Therefore participants will be trained on European test infrastructure by expert researchers in the field.
