Affiliated with CRSES, STERG is a research group housed in the Department of Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering. It was the first university research group in South Africa dedicated to solar thermal energy research. Its primary mission is to train students and deliver research outputs in Concentrating Solar Power (CSP).
STERG encourages multidisciplinary research activities and is presently expanding links with researchers in other departments and faculties. Together, we have established good links and cooperation with leading CSP research institutes worldwide.
