Novel Solar Thermal Polygeneration System for Sustainable Production of Cooling, Clean Water and Domestic Hot Water in UAE (2014)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on January 23, 2015

This master thesis, written by Gowtham Mohan at the Stockholm KTH School of Industrial Engineering and Management, introduces a solar thermal poly-generation (STP) system for production of chilled water for air conditioning using absorption chiller, pure water with membrane distillation and domestic hot water by heat recovery.

Contracting Models for Solar Thermally Driven Cooling and Heating Systems (2014)

Submitted by Pam Murphy on January 19, 2015
This report highlights new perspectives of financing large solar thermal cooling projects with the objective to expand the use of solar cooling technologies in the public and private sectors through an improved understanding of the approaches adopted by contracting models. The work was supported by the SHC project on large scale solar heating and cooling systems (SHC Task 45).

Solar Heating and Cooling of Buildings: Status and Perspectives (2014)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on January 15, 2015

This presentation, made by Prof. Paul Kohlenbach of the Beuth University of Applied Sciences of Berlin, illustrates the status and perspectives of solar thermal heating and cooling of buildings in Germany. The presentation was made at the Mexican-German Chamber of Commerce on September 2014.  

China: First Chinese Solar Cooling Conference to Take Place in Shanghai in March

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on January 5, 2015
SHC ConferenceThis spring, a major event for solar cooling is going to take place in Shanghai: From 23 to 27 March 2015, the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme and the Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) will jointly organise a Solar Cooling Week in the city. The week is going to start off with two Task meetings and end with the two-day Solar Cooling Conference (SCC). The SCC will take place for the very first time, be open to the public and include technical site visits on 26 March 2015, as well as a full-day conference with plenary and parallel sessions on 27 March 2015.

France: Promising Monitoring Results of Solar-Cooling Hybrid Strategy

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 5, 2014
Hybrid Solar Cooling ConceptDuring the Task 48 meeting in Garching, Germany, at the end of September 2014, Daniel Mugnier, Head of Task 48 of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling programme, presented the monitoring results of a promising demonstration project which integrates solar cooling technology into an existing building cluster. Engineered by Tecsol, the system has been supplying energy to two buildings housing offices and flats in Montpellier, in the south of France, since May 2012. The special characteristic of the system owned by the SERM (Société d’Équipement de la Région Montpelliéraine) is a hybrid mode in which the 240 m2 field with double-glazed collectors supplies heat to a single-effect lithium-bromide absorption chiller in summer, as well as domestic hot water to the block of flats all year round. During the main cooling season in July and August, the electrical coefficient of performance (COP) showed a very high average of 12, while the measured thermal COP during the same period was, on average, 0.6.

Sweden: Novel Solar Cooling Installation Boasts Average Electrical COP of 10.6

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 28, 2014
ConferenceThe first large-scale system which incorporates the newly developed CoolStore chiller by Swedish company ClimateWell was commissioned in June 2014 and has since been operating flawlessly at Swedish coffee producer Löfbergs in Karlstad, Sweden. In the middle of October, ClimateWell organised a mini-conference at Löfbergs in order to showcase the installation and its first monitoring results. The measurements taken between 11 and 25 July showed an average electrical coefficient of performance (COPel) of 10.6. This is more than twice as much as for a conventional electric vapour compression system, which has a COPel of between 2 and 5. The highest COP measured at the demonstration plant was 12.

Overview of Solar Thermal Process Heat & Cooling in India (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 2, 2014

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.
