Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 7, 2015

This report was written by Alaska Sun, which is a coalition in Alaska dedicated to furthering the use of solar energy in their state. It comes from their publication “A Solar Design Manual for Alaska” and focuses on various technologies that are commonly used in solar thermal systems.

Flat plate collectors are described as one of the most common solar thermal technologies and the report sketches one out in a diagram. Heat transfer fluids, which make many solar thermal systems possible, are covered and have the characteristics of what makes a good heat transfer fluid listed.

Finally, the presentation ends with a look at various passive solar thermal technologies for the home.
