This presentation by Fraunhofer ISE compares standard solar thermal-driven cooling systems with a conventional cooling reference case and PV-integrated cooling. The presentation displays findings of the respective comparative study based on a system modelling in TRNSYS.
This presentation by the Italian National Agency for new technologies, energy and economic and sustainable development provides a case study of an innovative solar heating and cooling system with PCM tank installed at the ENEA CASACCIA Research Centre (ROMA).
This presentation by QPM assesses the state of Qatar’s solar cooling market and provides an analysis of the opportunities and challenges stemming from the climatic conditions, technological capabilities and financial sources. The presentation also highlights several case studies of applying solar thermal cooling in different countries. This analysis is done with the intention to support installation of an energy-efficient solar thermal cooling system for an outdoor park in Qatar.
This case study from Proterra Solar looks at one of the largest solar thermal cooling and hearing projects in Canada. The collector system was installed on the Oxford Gardens retirement home in Ontario.
This case study comes from solar thermal manufacturer Chromasun. It reports on a combination solar thermal heating and cooling system that was installed on a California healthcare facility, the Crow Canyon Medical Center.
Werner B. Koldehoff of German Solar Industry Association (BSW) delivered this presentation at the Conference on “Green Energy” in Cairo, Egypt, in 2012. The presentation outlines the Egyptian solar thermal market and introduces the National Renewable Energy Initiative Egypt. The presentation also provides several case studies of solar thermal heating/cooling and examples of national solar thermal incentives worldwide.
This presentation from the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) discusses a project they collaborated on with the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and others to reduce the energy intensity of one of their facilities with a concentrated solar thermal air conditioning project.
This presentation comes from Queen’s University in Canada. It provides information on liquid desiccant air conditioning, background research on how this technology could be used with solar thermal air conditioning, and plans for a demonstration project.
