Tibet´s highly subsidised solar heating market

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 2, 2018
Tibet is currently in the focus of the Chinese central government’s efforts to improve the heating situation of the population. The lack of space heating in many buildings in the region, which is subject to a continental climate marked by cold winters, has prompted China’s government to support the installation of solar district heating systems. In addition to Chinese-Danish joint venture Arcon-Sunmark Large-Scale Solar Systems Integration, Chinese parabolic trough collector manufacturer Vicot Solar Technology has signed a contract with the local government to install a solar district heating system in the autonomous region of Tibet. The photo, taken in November 2017, shows one-third of the field’s substructure. The entire installation will have 18,000 m2 of aperture area which is defined as the flat, rectangular area specified by the outer perimeter of the mirrors.

Solar Keymark: Additional Table Allows Comparison of Annual Collector Output

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 1, 2012

The Solar Keymark certification is getting more consumer-friendly: Since the beginning of this year, the new certificate data sheets include a second page on the annual collector unit output for different solar radiation sites in Europe (Stockholm, Davos, Würzburg and Athens). The list shows the output at average collector temperatures of 25, 50 and 75 °C. For example: The new optimised Aqua Plasma collector 19/17 by German collector producer Ritter achieves 1,106 kWh per collector unit and year in Würzburg (50 °C). The gas-filled flat plate collector PS1-52 Joule by Austrian company Geo-Tec achieves 793 kWh at the same location. Both collectors were launched this year with a gross collector area of 1.69 m² and were presented at the Intersolar Europe in June. The listed output should now give end consumers a good hint at what they get for their money.
