UPM-GIT Group of the Polytechnic University of Madrid / E.T.S.I. Industriales

The main objective of the group is sustainable development in the field of energy generation and energy efficiency.

The group’s current research lines cover a wide range of working temperatures:

  • Decarbonation of natural gas for exploitation without greenhouse gas emissions (around 1200 °C).
  • Solar thermal concentration energy (around 500 °C). In this line, we aim at reducing costs by simplifying designs and components.
  • “FUTURO SOLAR”. Advanced Fresnel receiver with new concepts in solar field and receivers, for use of CO2 at high temperature and pressure in receiver.

  • Evolution of the concepts associated with FUTURO SOLAR, even cheaper and more reliable. The prototype has been built in TecnoGetafe with own funds from the GIT.
  • Hybrid concepts natural / solar gas.
  • Concentrated photovoltaic (60°C) analysis of thermal behaviour in operation, in collaboration with the Spanish company BSQ Solar, a prototype is currently available on the roof of the ETSII.

  • Buildings with almost zero energy consumption (-20°C), the most innovative trend in energy efficiency applied to building.
  • Cryogenics for superconductors (~-250°C). In the European BEST PATHS project, the GIT analyses the possibilities of cooling of a superconducting cable that must work at very low temperatures, close to 30K.
  • In the research lines of the GIT, temperature is the key aspect… how to measure it? The group is part of two important European accredited laboratories related to legal temperature metrology:
  • Testing and calibration services for thermal cooling and legal metrology systems
  • ATP (Agreements on the International Transport of Perishable Food and Special Equipment to be Used for These Transports) a test station is available in Getafe, Madrid.
