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.
This report is a summary of five solar thermal feasibility studies conducted by Stantec Consulting for the British Columbia Ministry of Agriculture. The studies looked at the potential for solar thermal heating and cooling systems to be used in various agricultural applications across British Columbia.
This document is a part of the 2012 Quality Assurance in Solar Heating and Cooling Technology (QAiST) Project report on the requirements for durability and performance testing of solar cooling systems. The study analyses the existing situation in the field of solar thermal cooling and provides recommendations for innovative approaches, methods and standards in the area.
This presentation of Green Chiller Association for Sorption Cooling e.V. outlines different types of solar thermal collectors for industrial heating and cooling, and their existing capacities and advantages. It also provides an overview of the market statistics for the use of solar process heat and cooling in Germany and in the world.
This presentation was given at the Indo-German Cleantech Symposium in New Delhi, 2012, and focuses on the potential of Solar Fresnel collectors for Industrial solar cooling and process heating.
This report was written by Eric Buchanan of the University of Minnesota, West Central Research and Outreach Center (WCROC). It provides the preliminary energy data results obtained from the study of a large evacuated tube solar thermal system for building heating and cooling.
This presentation was given by Werner B. Koldehoff of the German Solar Industry Association (BSW), in order to make the case for increased takeup of solar thermal technologies for industries in Thailand. Koldehoff begins by highlighting Thailand's higher solar irradiance in comparison with Germany, and demonstrating the economic benefits that have arisen from solar thermal industry developments in the latter.
As in previous years, ESTIF, the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation, has issued this publication with detailed data and numbers about the solar thermal market in the EU 27 and Switzerland in 2010.
