This presentation was made during the Regional Workshop on SWH Certification and Standardization organised by RCREEE (Regional Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency) in Tunisia in autumn 2009.
The presentation shows the results of a study on the framework needed for the introduction of domestic solar water heaters in Yemen.
Integrated in the European project EMTEU, the European Energy Centre – Centro Studi Galileo Italy has organised in March 2010 two training seminars dedicated to solar energy, one to photovoltaics and another one to solar thermal.
The EMTEU project (Energy Management Technician in Europe) aims to contribute to the creation of a specialised workforce for the renewable energy sector in Europe.
This document was released by Clixoo Renewable Energy Research in 2009. It starts with a background on solar thermal and the different applications of solar thermal energy.
It also explains a solar thermal value chain, which breaks down the process of producing solar thermal systems, and the companies involved in the process. You can see a table of all system components and the materials it takes to make them.
This paper was prepared by SuperSmart Grid (SSG) in 2007.
The report offers a variety of credible sources on the economics of Concentrating Solar Thermal Power (CSTP).
It aims to give the most up to date and pertinent information relating to CSTP plants and it’s cost benefit in relation to PV and other intermittent energy sources. It shows that with a 30 percent investment tax credit the effective cost of CSTP is can be reduced by almost $30/MVh.
This document is one of the deliverables of the Solarterm Project. The project, funded by the European Commission 6th Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, gathers 18 partners including eight southern Mediterranean countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestinian Territories, Syria, Tunisia) and the five EU countries (Cyprus, Germany, Greece, Malta and Spain). The objective of the project is to boost the use of solar thermal and cooling systems in the southern Mediterranean countries.
