Germany: World Map of Solar Process Heat Collector Industry 2014

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 31, 2014
World Map Process HeatThere is enormous demand for industrial heat in the temperature range between 100 and 250 °C all around the world, and solar thermal technologies are said to play an important role in covering this demand over the next decades. A joint project by magazine Sun & Wind Energy and German agency solrico was to find out which companies offer solar process heat collectors, what technology they focus on and how many commercial projects they have already realised. The results of the global survey now make up the first World Map of the Solar Process Heat Collector Industry, which was published in the March edition of Sun & Wind Energy and is also available for download on solrico´s website

India: Rising Diesel Prices Boost Attractiveness of Solar Thermal

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 19, 2013

India’s government announced at the beginning of this year that it would gradually increase the price of diesel by INR 1 each month for the following 10 months. The government is aiming to bring retail prices in India on a par with international crude prices, in order to reduce the subsidy burden on the public budget. The chart shows that the industrial sector accounts for 8% of the country’s entire diesel consumption. The rising prices will certainly hurt the industries which have already paid much for electricity. Solar thermal technologies, however, can replace these expensive diesel systems: with an average of 300 clear sunny days per year, solar has a nature-given advantage over other energy sources.
