Market sectors : Solar Cooling
This report was commissioned by India’s Ministry for New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) to estimate the realisable market potential for Solar Water Heating (SWH) systems in India’s different industrial sectors, and to prepare action plans for future development. The MNRE concluded that the industrial penetration of SWH would need scalability, innovative marketing, financing and service delivery mechanisms.
This presentation outlines the benefits of solar cooling and process heat for emerging markets and developing countries, and charts the work of Solar Installation Design (S.O.L.I.D) to increase its market penetration. S.O.L.I.D works to deliver fixed price turnkey installations for cash, with case studies included of existing projects such as the EA Tower in Pristina and the Olympic Sailing Village in China.
This powerpoint presentation was given by Solem Consulting’s Dr. Uli Jakob at the 2012 Intersolar Europe Conference. It gives a sprawling overview of the solar cooling market by 2012, beginning with an overview of the different collector and chiller technologies currently on the international market. It also lists the solar cooling kit suppliers across different global regions.
This presentation - given by TECSOL’s Daniel Mugnier at the 2012 Intersolar fair in Munich - gives an overview of recent technological developments in Solar Cooling, and an outlook for the progress that still needs to be made in the future. This is made in the framework of Task 48 of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Program. The main technical progress over the last decade is outlined for closed cycles and open sorptive cycles, as well as sorption cooling and high temperature applications.
This presentation - given by ESTTP’s Dr. Wim van Helden at the 2012 Renewable District Heating and Cooling Conference - sets out key Research and Development priorities for the solar thermal industry in the next decade. Challenges still remain to reduce investment costs, further increase solar fraction and further develop solar thermal technology.
As part of a series of IEA Roadmaps on energy technologies, this report specifically maps the potential development of heating and cooling equipment for energy-efficient buildings between 2011 and 2050. In line with other roadmaps, two scenarios are plotted: a baseline scenario representing minimal policy change and a BLUE map scenario with aggressive policy action.
This report has been written by Werner Weiss and Franz Mauthner in contribution to the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC). It documents the solar thermal capacity installed in 55 countries, and ascertains the contribution of solar thermal systems to the supply of energy and the CO¬2 emissions avoided as a result of operating these systems.
