On 13 June 2014, Hannes Bauer, Solar Thermal Program Manager at ECREEE, ECOWAS Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency, gave a workshop in Cabo Verde on the new ECOWAS (Economic Community of West African States) Solar Thermal Energy Program.
The 1st part of the presentation focuses on the global market growth of solar thermal collectors, showing that from 2000 to 2010 the market has increased steadily by 20% each year. It also shows that West African States were not participating during that period.
This presentation on solar air-conditioning system was given by Kawasaki’s Hajime Yabase, together with Kiyohshi Saito of the Waseda University and Muhammad Idrus Alhamid of the University of Indonesia, at the ATMOsphere conference which took place in Tokyo from 3 to 5 February 2014. The speakers outlined the numerous advantages of using double-effect absorption chillers in solar air-conditioning system. Absorption chillers use water as refrigerant instead of Freon, they consume less energy than electric chiller and different energy sources can be used. The presentation also compares a
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.

This presentation was made by Werner B. Koldehoff at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) workshop "Solar Thermal Thailand" held in Berlin on March 2012. It presents the status of solar thermal industry in Germany and worldwide to analyse the potential develoment of the industry in Thailand.
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.
