Solites works in all areas of solar and sustainable thermal energy systems that contribute significantly to reducing CO2 emissions. As a research institute in the Steinbeis network the focus of our work is on innovative and new technologies for which the state of the art does not yet exist or where it has to be adapted to new problems.

Solites’ range of services includes basic and applied research, project development, technical concept development, system simulation, design and optimization of complex thermal energy systems by simulation, scientific-technical accompaniment of planning, tendering, commissioning and construction, operation optimization, measurement data analysis and evaluation as well as support and advice for political initiatives and market development.

Solites was founded in May 2005 by former employees of the Institute for Thermodynamics and Thermal Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. Since then, the Solites team has been growing steadily and has strategically expanded its professional leadership in its business areas. Solites scientists are member or chairman of national and international expert groups, advise ministries and funding agencies – and also with pleasure everyone who wants to significantly reduce his fossil fuel consumption.
