The Chinese-Danish joint venture signed an agreement with the local government of the autonomous region of Tibet. The system should provide solar district heating for 82,600 m² of floor area and meet 90 % of the yearly space heating demand in Langkazi, the town sharing its name with the county. The system, planned to be set up by November, will consist of a 22,000 m² collector field, 15,000 m³ of pit storage and a 3-MW electric boiler. The sponsor of the pilot project is China’s central government.

SHC industry roadmap for Australia

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 8, 2018
Despite Australia’s high levels of solar irradiation and rising energy costs, its solar heating and cooling market has been in decline each year since 2010. The newly installed glazed and unglazed collector area went from a peak of 1.14 million m2 in 2009 (798 MWth) to 544,670 m2 in 2016 (381 MWth) – less than half of what it used to be. Reversing the downward spiral is the aim of an industry roadmap, titled Solar Heating and Cooling in Australia´s Built Environment, which was commissioned by ARENA, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, and is currently under review. During an internal workshop in Abu Dhabi last November, Australian-based consultancy Coolgaia discussed the findings from the roadmap with solar cooling experts working on Task 53 of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (see photo).

7th International workshop on Solar Air-Conditioning, Abu Dhabi

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 23, 2016
The 7th International Workshop on Solar Air Conditioning will be held in conjunction with SWC and SHC 2017 in Abu Dhabi at the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers on 31 October 2017. It will give the floor to the new generation of solar cooling systems based on the coupling between PV and air conditioning systems as well as the diversification of usage of the solar heat beyond simply cooling: domestic hot water, space heating, process heat, heating for networks.
