IEA SHC Solar Academy: Solar Heating for Industrial Processes

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 6, 2017
SHC Academy LogoResearchers have worked intensively across national borders to increase deployment of Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP), which is regarded as one of the most promising solar thermal applications. When IEA SHC Task 49, Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes, was launched in 2012, there were reportedly around 120 SHIP systems adding up to 88 MWth. Over the last years, total installation figures have tripled to more than 500 systems and a minimum of 291 MWth globally.
 

Webinar: Advanced Lighting Solutions for Retrofitting Buildings

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 7, 2017
SHC Solar AcademyLED technology has greatly changed the face of the lighting market: In just a few years, lighting systems have become twice as efficient and half as expensive. Planners are challenged to keep track of the fast technological developments occurring as they work with clients to find the most cost-effective solutions. In this webinar on Advanced Lighting Solutions for Retrofitting Buildings researchers of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling (IEA SHC) Programme will talk about the potential in lighting retrofit, introduce advanced solutions, and present an interactive electronic source book and toolbox called The lighting Retrofit Adviser. All stakeholders are invited to join the webinar scheduled online for 1.5 hours on Tuesday, 21 March 2017, from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Central European Time (time zone includes Berlin, Brussels, and Copenhagen). You can register online.
 

SHC 2017 and Solar World Congress Jointly Call for Papers

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on January 23, 2017
SHC 2017 and Solar World CongressMasdar Institute of Science and Technology will host the key solar heating and cooling conference this year in Abu Dhabi from 29 October to 2 November. Two major organizations in the solar arena joined forces to offer a conference with a wide range of solar heating and cooling topics: IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) and the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). One registration fee will get you into both events – International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry (SHC 2017) and ISES Solar World Congress (SWC 2017). Joint plenary sessions will be followed by parallel sessions, which are arranged separately by IEA SHC or ISES, and jointly organised sessions on selected topics like solar buildings. The Call for Papers for both conferences is open until 24 March 2017. 
 

Denmark/Germany: Consumer-Owned Utilities Spearhead Energy Market Transformation

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 2, 2016
Webinar SpeakersSolar district heating is becoming increasingly attractive to small towns and municipalities which are looking for energy independence and stable heat prices, a trend which was discussed at length during the October webinar by the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). Entitled Renewable district heating – Small local grids and cooperative utilities, it offered an opportunity for German and Danish experts to present successful case studies, underline the political frame conditions which foster renewable integration into district heating and explain the advantages of cooperatives (recording available online). The photo shows the experts participating in this first webinar of a three-part series coordinated by Riccardo Battisti, Head of EU Project SmartReFlex: Per Alex Sørensen and Per Kristensen from Denmark as well as Oliver Miedaner from German Solites (from left). The second webinar – Think big: Design rules and monitoring results of solar district heating systems – will be organised in cooperation with solarthermalworld.org and is scheduled for 6 December (online registration). 
 

Spain: EuroSun 2016 Focuses on Complete Solar Systems

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 27, 2016
Wolfgang Streicher; Eicke Weber; Victor Martinez MollFrom 11 to 14 October, more than 300 experts in solar energy met in Palma de Mallorca for the EuroSun 2016 conference. Organised by the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) in cooperation with the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB), the conference is attended mainly by scientists and industry stakeholders from the solar heating and cooling sector. But for the first time, speakers also included well-known specialists from the photovoltaics sector. Two panel discussions illustrated the wide range of opinions on solar heat and solar electricity market development and the technologies' competitors. The photo shows Professor Eicke Weber (middle), newly elected Vice President of ISES and Director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (Fraunhofer ISE) based in Freiburg, Germany, and two of the three conference chairs: Professor Wolfgang Streicher (left) from the University of Innsbruck, Austria, and Professor Víctor Martínez Moll (right) from the UIB.

IEA SHC Programme Scales up its International Research Network

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 18, 2016
The IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) broadens its sponsor network. The most recent members are the International Solar Energy Society (ISES), headquartered in Germany, and the Gulf Organisation for Research & Development (GORD) based in Qatar. ISES joined as a Sponsor in 2016 and GORD already in 2015. “We welcome the engagement of ISES and GORD in the IEA SHC Programme,“ says Ken Guthrie, Chairman of IEA SHC. “ISES represents an extensive network of solar thermal professionals from around the world and GORD opens the doors to the Gulf States – potential future markets for solar cooling“. 
 

Spain/South Africa: EuroSun and SASEC Extend Submission Deadlines

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 13, 2016
EurosunTwo solar thermal conferences have recently extended their abstract submission dates. The EuroSun 2016 conference, which will take place on the Spanish island of Mallorca between 11 and 14 October 2016, will still accept submissions until 24 April. Step-by-step instructions, including abstract guidelines and an abstract template, are available on the EuroSun website. The SASEC 2016 conference, which is planned for 31 October to 2 November in Stellenbosch, South Africa, extended its submission deadline to 18 April 2016. Here, abstracts of 400 to 600 words can be uploaded as PDFs to the conference page. One of several key topics of both conferences: markets and technologies for solar heating and cooling.
