This presentation by Solites introduces modelling for solar district heating. The applied method is based on TRNSYS (Transient System Simulation Tool), software used for simulations for assessing the performance of thermal and electrical energy systems. The presentation also outlines environmental and economic performance criteria for the two models.
This presentation by the SO-PRO initiative, a project supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme, introduces the concept of solar contracting from Energy Service Companies (ESCOs) and provides an analysis of its potential in Germany’s North Rhine-Westphalia. ESCOs plan, install and operate an energy supply system based on eg. Solar thermal; while the customer buys the needed energy in the form of hot water. Two models exist in Germany: energy supply and energy saving contracting.
This presentation comes from the Cambridge Energy Alliance which is an initiative of the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts to help city residents reduce their carbon footprints. The presentation lays out the ways solar thermal could be a benefit to landlords in the city for use in their buildings.
This presentation on solar thermal water and air heating comes from the solar energy company Shift Energy, LLC. It looks at the benefits and applications of solar thermal wall cladding technologies.
This presentation by the Energy and Resources Institute outlines several case studies of solar water heating systems and other renewable resources in the hospitality sector of India. The given case studies are part of the “Campaign on Solar Water Heating and other Renewable Energy Technologies in the Hospitality Sector” under UNDP-GEF’s National programme on Solar Water Heating Systems (SWHS), implemented together with India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energies.
This case study comes from solar thermal manufacturer Chromasun. It reports on a combination solar thermal heating and cooling system that was installed on a California healthcare facility, the Crow Canyon Medical Center.
