The Second prize on the quality of the scientific production was awarded to professor Mohamed Trari, from the laboratory of Renewable Energy Storage and Valorization of the University of Science and Technology Houari Boumediene USTHB, for his numerous production during these last five years, especially the various quotations of his articles in scientific databases.

The prize of the national industrial production of this year, was attributed to Sharikat Kahraba Wa Takat Moutadjadida SKTM, brand of Sonelgaz in charge of the production of electricity as well as the realization of many photovoltaic and wind plants.

AS the CDER has the will to encourage realizations and practical applications in innovative research projects, three encouragement prizes have been attributed to research teams from the center and its units. For this year, honored teams are :

- The Thermodynamic Mini Plant team From The unit of Ghardaia URAER/ CDER for their realization of a Concentrating System applied on the Algerian South.

- Solar Thermal Equipment and Applications team at the unit of Bousmail, UDES/CDER for their realization of a PVT sensor with forced air convection which can be integrated in building.

- Bioclimatic team of the CDER for their realization of a software of Thermal Algerian Regulation RTA.

The 2015 Summer Soltice, was also an occasion to inaugurate a solar water-heater certification facility which will provide for the center checking the compliance of the equipments with national and international standards.
