Europe/Asia: Solar Cooling Gains Traction

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 3, 2012

Large Japanese and Chinese companies have recently taken a greater interest in solar cooling. The photo shows an installation by Chinese company Jiangsu Huineng New Energy Technology (Huin), which started supplying solar cooling systems this year. New system kits help drive down costs, although investments in sorption chillers are still higher than for compression chillers. After the Intersolar Europe conference in Munich, Germany, and its dedicated solar cooling session, Uli Jakob, Vice President of the German sorption chiller association Green Chiller, noted: “Solar cooling was one of the highlights of the conference.”

India: New Solar-Biomass Cold Storage and Power Generation System

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 30, 2012

One of the leading solar solution providers in India, Thermax, has just implemented a so-called solar-biomass hybrid demonstration project at the Solar Energy Centre in northern India. The cold storage and power generation system is the first of its kind worldwide. It comprises of a 15 kW (~5 tons of refrigeration) Thermax Vapour Absorption Machine (VAM), coupled with a field of Thermax SolPac D160 solar thermal tracking concentrators, as well as a 50kWel biomass gasifier system. The VAM uses both the heat energy from the solar parabolic concentrators and the waste heat from the biomass gasifier to cool the storage chamber.
