This master thesis, written by Gowtham Mohan at the Stockholm KTH School of Industrial Engineering and Management, introduces a solar thermal poly-generation (STP) system for production of chilled water for air conditioning using absorption chiller, pure water with membrane distillation and domestic hot water by heat recovery.
This report highlights new perspectives of financing large solar thermal cooling projects with the objective to expand the use of solar cooling technologies in the public and private sectors through an improved understanding of the approaches adopted by contracting models. The work was supported by the SHC project on large scale solar heating and cooling systems (SHC Task 45).

This presentation, made by Prof. Paul Kohlenbach of the Beuth University of Applied Sciences of Berlin, illustrates the status and perspectives of solar thermal heating and cooling of buildings in Germany. The presentation was made at the Mexican-German Chamber of Commerce on September 2014.
In support of the Global Solar Water Heating (GSWH) Market Transformation and Strengthening Initiative (“the GSWH project”), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) has identified a need for a replicable and public methodology to evaluate the solar water heating policy, finance and investment, business, and quality control infrastructure across countries: the SWH TechScope Market Readiness Assessment methodology.
