Large Scale Solar Thermal Systems: SOLID Case Studies (2009)
This presentation was created by the SOLID Group. It discusses some solar thermal applications such as process heat and solar cooling, and provides case studies and photos to illustrate the benefits of these solar thermal applications.
Solar thermal tends to create value locally where projects are constructed, as so much work is on site and done by local workers. A main advantage of solar cooling is that general peak solar radiation matches with peak demand for solar cooling. One example of a successful solar cooling project is a public recreation center in Arizona. Process heat is being used with great success at the Gatorade Pepsico facility in Arizona, where solar thermal provides fluid heating at a number of stages in their production process.
