This study is a deliverable of the IEA Solar Heating & Cooling Programme. Based on the previous studies and results from international R&D cooperation, the declared goal is to present the opportunities linked to solar thermal technologies given their positioning as the fourth largest renewable source of energy.
This position paper is a deliverable of the Task 38 “Solar Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration” of the IEA Solar Heating & Cooling Programme. It describes the application of active solar heating and cooling technologies within the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system of buildings in the context of increasing energy efficiency requirements.
The 'SDHtake-off - Solar District Heating in Europe' project is a EU-funded project (under the European Commission Programme IEE Intelligent Energy Europe)supporting the market rollout of solar district heating in Europe. It started on July 2009 and runs for a period of three years. This document is one of its deliverables, describing the development of SDH capacities in Europe as a result of the existing policies and incentives.
This article was published in the International Journal of Energy of the North Atlantic University Union. It advocates for the solar generation of thermal energy and its use for buildings and domestic water heating in Romania.
This document was presented at the 2nd European Conference on Polygeneration (30 March-1 April 2011, Tarragona, Spain) by the researchers D. Chemisana, J. Lopez-Villada, A. Coronas and J. I. Rossel.
It analysis the energy consumption of buildings from Mediterranean countries and the solutions offered by solar cooling and solar concentrator systems. The paper consists of a comparative analysis between two cooling systems: one with evacuated tube collectors and a single-effect absorption chiller, the other with a solar concentrating system and double-effect absorption chiller.
This report issued by the International Energy Agency (IEA), gives a detailed overview of the policies in place at that time regarding the R&D and integration policies of solar thermal products for the buildings sector.
