This report by the Council on Energy, Environment and Water, and the Natural Resources Defense Council outlines the objectives, targets, and incentives of a three-phase Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (NSM) - a nation-wide project of India with an ambitious goal of meeting 20 000 megawatts (MW) of grid-connected solar power and 2,000 MW of off-grid installations by 2022. The report gives an overview of the first stage of the project for grid-connected concentrated solar power (CSP) projects in India.
This presentation from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) discusses a project they collaborated on with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and others to reduce the energy intensity of one of their facilities with a concentrated solar thermal air conditioning project.
This presentation from the Rural Renewable Energy Alliance (RREAL) discusses solar thermal as an effort to alleviate poverty and as a better way that current programs to increase household energy security. It focuses on their solar thermal air heating program, which was widely used in Minnesota.
This presentation from Magnum Mechanical Systems examines various applications of solar thermal heating, and how technologies can be integrated into existing systems. Domestic applications, pool heating, commercial heating, and space heating are all touched on in the presentation.
This presentation from Solar Wave Energy, Inc. discusses monitoring systems and measurements for solar thermal heating and cooling. It was first presented at the Solar Thermal ’12 conference hosted by the Midwest Renewable Energy Association.
This presentation by Dürr Systems GmbH and Industrial Solar GmbH illustrates how solar thermal heating utilised in automotive car painting industrial process decreases environmental impact and contributes to sustainable production.
This report by the EU-funded project Solar District Heating study draws on the general and country-specific trends in the solar district heating sector. This report is the third out of the series of studies within the framework of SDG take-off WP 2 - the Market and policy assessment. The Solar District Heating EU-funded projects are described in more detail here.
This presentation from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) looks at both the current usage of solar thermal as a food drying and processing technology, and where current research could lead the technology in the future.
This presentation was created by Aquatherm Industries, Inc. and was originally delivered at the solar thermal conference Solar Thermal ‘12. It provides information on the current state of the market for solar thermal water heating systems in commercial pools, and the technologies that are thriving in the market.
