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.
This presentation by ESTIF has been presented at the 4th European Conference on Renewable Heating and Cooling in April 2013 in Dublin. The presentation gives an overview of what is needed to develop a Roadmap for solar heating and cooling technologies in Europe. Their Solar Heating and Cooling Technology Roadmap is expected to be completed by July 2013, and will include: goals, technological capacities and solutions for achieving energy efficiency.
This presentation comes from Puerto Rico’s Universidad del Turabo, and explores the benefits of solar thermal air conditioning, the technology that makes this application possible, and how its use can be expanded in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.
This presentation was given by BSW, the German Solar Industry Association, and provides an outline of the German solar thermal energy sector: market trends, policies and existing opportunities and challenges.
