This report was written by Alexander Holiday and Yin Yaling of the University of Minnesota. It reports on simulation trials of solar thermal air condition systems that were run on a modeling software program.
The system in question was a solar thermal ceiling cooling system. The model showed that when air inflow temperature was increased, humidity rose, and the comfort level of the room was decreased. However, the researchers gained a positive result when increasing the ceiling cooling temperature, which dropped the humidity, and increased the comfort level of the room.
This presentation was created by the solar energy company Ontility. It covers solar thermal technology, applications, and the basics of the science that make solar thermal possible.
This presentation was created by the SOLID Group. It discusses some solar thermal applications such as process heat and solar cooling, and provides case studies and photos to illustrate the benefits of these solar thermal applications.
This white paper was written by William Guiney of Johnson Controls. It looks at the opportunities and potential for long-run development and wide spread use of solar thermal, especially for pool heating, space heating, and cooling applications.
This diagram was created by IceSolair. The diagram explains the methods and modes of how solar thermal air conditioning systems operate, it also looks at the various parts and technologies that allow the system to work, and it shows how the system works in reverse for heating purposes.
This presentation was created by Lucio Mesquita of solar energy company EnerWorks. It focuses on the use and prevalence of solar thermal air-conditioning in the United States.
This report has been written by Werner Weiss and Franz Mauthner in contribution to the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC). It documents the solar thermal capacity installed in 55 countries, and ascertains the contribution of solar thermal systems to the supply of energy and the CO¬2 emissions avoided as a result of operating these systems.
This report - presented to the International Energy Agency Solar Heating and Cooling Programme in 2009 - gives an overview of the solar heating and cooling industry in Austria.
This includes an outline of the national and European regulatory environment, and the research programmes used to further technological development in the sector. Austrian public expenditure for energy research is specified as €31,886,023 in 2007, of which €826,852 was directed towards solar heating and cooling.
