This presentation was created by Eric Buchanan of the University of Minnesota. It provides a comprehensive overview of how solar thermal technology works and how it is used in practice.
This presentation was created by Premium Solar, a Tallahassee solar company. It provides diagrams, frequently asked questions, installation tips, and examples of successful solar thermal air conditioning systems.
This report was made in 2012 by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), and gives a general overview of existing solar cooling technologies and potential fields of action within the context of global patent applicatons. It gives statistics on the 550 relevant patent families for solar thermal technology, including the geographical prevalence of applications and specificities about their content.
This 2012 presentation evaluates the status, opportunities and risks for the German solar thermal industry. It begins by detailing the size of the industry, which employees over 20,000 German employees and had a turnover of €1.05 billion in 2011. These figures however reflect a declining annual turnover since the industry's 2008 peak.
Up to 21% of all final energy use and feedstock in manufacturing industry can be provided by renewable energies by 2050, concludes UNIDO, the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation, on this report published in 2010.
The publication sheds some light on the use of renewable energies (biomass, solar thermal, heat pumps) in industrial applications. Although widely known for its use in residential applications, renewable energies are less common in manufacturing.
This presentation was created by David M. Baker, President/CEO of PDM Solar, Inc. It provides information on the benefits and technology of solar thermal air conditioning.
This paper is taken from the proceedings of the 2nd PALENC conference and 28th AIVC conference on Building Energy Cooling and Advanced Ventilation Technologies in the 21st Century. It explores the potential cooling demand in a dwelling in the UK and the potential use of solar thermal cooling systems. As UK Building regulations demand better insulated and more airtight new buildings, the demand for cooling as begun to escalate in UK new build dwellings.
This document was created and published by the University of Minnesota. It explains how solar thermal cooling works, and takes a look at the parts of solar thermal cooling systems that allow it to operate.
