Earlier this month, Industrial Solar GmbH, a subsidiary of CISH, was awarded € 310,000 to partake in a €3M Artificial Intelligence (AI) development project as part of a research and development consortium. Now, the company and its partners were officially recognized for their effort.
Shortly after the project was funded, Industrial Solar received an official recognition certificate from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety, and Consumer Protection. The certificate confirms that Industrial Solar’s contribution is officially recognized, and the selection process for the funding awards was highly competitive for innovative AI applications for climate protection. The project, titled AI-Methoden für die autarke und selbstoptimierende solare Energieerzeugung (AI methods for self-sufficient and self-optimizing solar power generation), is one of the 28 projects that received funding.
By funding AuSeSol-AI, the German Federal Ministry aims to advance AI applications for climate protection. The selection criteria included a high level of practical relevance, transdisciplinary teams, a collaboration between science and industry, and ideas that compete with each other in fulfilling the International Climate Initiative’s principle of “good ideas that can save the future.” Industrial Solar has successfully met these criteria in collaboration with important partners from academia (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt e.V., Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, Technische Universität München) and industry (Concentrating Solar Power España S.L and fortiss GmbH).
Receiving this official recognition certificate is a motivating force for Industrial Solar. It shows that the company is not only up to date with the latest developments in finding innovative solutions to combat climate change but also made a correct strategic move by bringing more focus to Germany.
