This document provides basic information on solar water heating systems. It has been developed by the Hong Kong Electrical and Mechanical Service Department to foster the use of solar thermal system for hot water production in the framework of an increased use of renewable energies in that region.
This report, published by SHAAMS, the Strategic Hubs for the Analysis and Acceleration of the Mediterranean Solar Sector, provides a general picture of the solar energy sector in Jordan and makes a SWOT analyses. It shares information on the regional solar policies and strategies already in place, on R&D projects and awareness campaigns. With regards to solar thermal energy, the report indicates that
This document provides information and guidelines on tax credits resulting from investing in renewable energies in North Carolina. It provides a legislative background of the issue dating back to 1999 as well as punctual information on credit ceilings, definitions, eligibility, requirements, frequently asked questions and tax credit amount for each type of renewable energy considered.
This Master thesis has been written by Erika Lundgren as part of the Masters Programme in Environmental and Water Engineering at Uppsala University, Sweden. It was financed by the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA) on behalf of International Science Programme (ISP) at Uppsala University, involving also the department of Biomedical and Physics at University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
In its effort to rely more and more on solar thermal energy and increase the use of Concentrated Solar Technologies (CST), the Indian Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has implemented a project, supported by the UNPD/GEF, which aims at developing material and component specifications of 6 standards CSTs as reference document for maintaining quality in the field by manufacturers. The Ministry has launched a request for proposal and published a bid document.
This presentation was given by Dr. A.K. Singhal of the Indian Ministry of New & Renewable Energy at the 3rd Indo-German Energy Symposium in Delhi in May 2012. The speaker provides a detailed overview of the various solar thermal technologies already available or still under development in India. The presentation focuses on Solar Water Heating (SWH), Solar Air Heating, Process Heat and Solar Cooling. SHW is well developed in India and in 2012 5.10 million m² of collectors had already been installed, with the objective to reach 18.7 million by 2022.
