Planned and active projects
Installation in Morocco together with Masen
Our installation in Morocco is a verification project carried out together with key partner, Masen. The site for the project is one of the world’s largest test areas for Concentrated Solar Power. The purpose is to generate input to preparation of volume production in 2021 and to generate data for commercial purposes.
The full-scale installation of Azelio’s thermal energy storage and Stirling engine was inaugurated on March 5th, 2020.

Abu Dhabi project
Pilot project in with Masdar, ALEC Energy & Khalifa University in Masdar City
The project aims to test and demonstrate Azelio’s system for renewable energy projects that use PV, concentrated solar power (CSP) and wind energy. The purpose is to evaluate the technology for inclusion in Masdar’s current and future renewable energy projects.
Testing will begin in the fall of 2020 with an evaluation of Azelio’s Stirling engine system for renewable power production. This will be followed by an analysis of the complete system, including the thermal energy storage (TES).
Verification in Sweden with DNV-GL
In addition to the verification project in Morocco, a collaboration with the largest renewable energy technical consultancy and supervisory company DNV-GL enables verification of our technology in Sweden. Tests will be carried out close to Azelio’s development center, together with other renewable technologies and different grid configurations. The varying test environments accelerate the verification for a wide area of uses.
The collaboration with DNV-GL involves varied test possibilities with results expected in the fall of 2020.
