During an event organized earlier this year by IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency, Myriem Touhami, Program Manager, at the Energy Unit of UNEP's Division of Technology, Industry and Economic, presented the applications of UNEP’s strategy to engage local bank for lending.
This presentation was given by AEE INTEC at a SOLTRAIN training in Pretoria, South Africa, in April 2014. It provides an overview of the EU-funded FP7 project SolarBrew. This project aims at developing the use of solar process heat in the brewing industry. 3 breweries are part of this project. The Brewery Goess in Austria is using solar energy for its mashing process, relying on a 1.500m² flat plate collector field and a 200m³ storage tank.
This presentation on active solar systems was given during a course on sustainable design by Benoit Cushman-Roisin, Professor of Engineering Science and Director of the Master of Engineering Management Degree Program at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth in New Hampshire.
This brief on thermal energy storage (TES) was issued by IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency and the Energy Technology Systems Analysis Programme (ETSAP) of the International Energy Agency (IEA) in January 2013. It provides an overview of the different thermal energy storage technologies available for both the building sector (domestic hot water, space heating and air-conditioning) and industrial sectors (process heat and cold). The 3 main TES systems analyzed are the sensible heat storage, the latent heat storage using phase changed materials (PCM) and the thermo-chemical s
This presentation, given by Dr. Uli Jakob of Solem Consulting, at the AHK (German-Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce) conference in Sydney in March 2014, gives an update on the technologies and perspectives of solar cooling systems. It covers the different technologies used, such as sorption chillers, integrated hydraulic units and standardized solar cooling kits. It also provides a short overview of solar collector technologies for solar cooling.
