This document provides details on the Solar Thermal (ST) Program funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to financially support the substitution of electrically heated domestic hot water systems with solar thermal systems. The present document is an update of an existing 2010 programme, available here. The new version provides additional details on general program rules and system requirements.
This paper on solar air collectors for space heating and ventilation applications was presented by Sanda Budea of the University Politechnica of Bucharest, during the 1st International e-Conference on Energies hosted by the Sciforum, an online platform for open scholarly exchange and collaboration, in March 2014. The author shared the results of experiments and case studies conducted under Romanian weather conditions to analyze the performance of solar heat collectors for space heating in winter and for ventilation applications in summer.

This topic was addressed by George Roditis, Head of the Applied Energy Laboratory, at IRENA’s conference on renewable energy applications for island tourism which took place in Cyprus in May 2014.
The VTT Technical Research Center of Finland presented a study on solar thermal integration into a district heated small house at the 14th International Symposium on District Heating and Cooling which took place in Stockholm from 7 to 9 September. The purpose of this study is to analyse the results of a simulation model of a district heating substation on the energy savings in Domestic Hot Water (DHW) heating and space heating. For this project, researchers used the energy simulation software IDA-ICE .
