This presentation on solar-driven water treatment was given by SolarSpring’s Dip.-Ing. Lorenz Bauer at Intersolar Europe in June 2014. After a short introduction on SolarSprings’ products and activities, the speaker presented 4 different solar water treatment projects that were conducted in India. These 4 projects use specific solar disinfection systems and their aim is to provide sufficient safe drinking water to the communities’ populations and create an optimized municipal waste water treatment.
NV Energy, a major energy company in Nevada, was authorized in 2010 by the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada to start an incentive program, called the Solar Hot Water Program, for its customers willing to install solar hot water systems. NV Energy has published a handbook which provides information on the background of this program and also explains the eligibility criteria. The document enumerates the different steps to follow to submit a dossier and gives information on the incentive's calculation methods.
