This report was prepared by the ClearSky Advisors and is a survey of the Canadian solar thermal industry covering the year 2012.
During an event organized earlier this year by IRENA, the International Renewable Energy Agency, Myriem Touhami, Program Manager, at the Energy Unit of UNEP's Division of Technology, Industry and Economic, presented the applications of UNEP’s strategy to engage local bank for lending.
This presentation was given by AEE INTEC at a SOLTRAIN training in Pretoria, South Africa, in April 2014. It provides an overview of the EU-funded FP7 project SolarBrew. This project aims at developing the use of solar process heat in the brewing industry. 3 breweries are part of this project. The Brewery Goess in Austria is using solar energy for its mashing process, relying on a 1.500m² flat plate collector field and a 200m³ storage tank.
This study on the value of solar heating and cooling, commissioned by the Minnesota Department of Commerce, analyses how solar thermal energy can help the state in reaching the climate and energy goals of reducing greenhouse gases emissions by 80% by 2050 and relying on renewable energy to produce 25% of electricity by 2025.
This report presents an overview of existing and novel concepts for heat rejection devices in solar cooling systems and recommends which heat rejection measures should be used under different boundary conditions (climate, system concept, etc.). Several components include a performance characterization that was prepared in partnership with manufacturers.
