Solar Cooling: From Research to Market Competitiveness

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 6, 2015
Otti SAC 2015Diligent research on small scale low-temperature chillers, the launch of a new generation of compact solar cooling units and large-scale plants able to compete economically with conventional cooling solutions: These are just some of the main trends which were discussed during the 6th International Conference on Solar Air-Conditioning organised by German company East-Bavarian Institute for Technology Transfer, OTTI, Rome, Italy, on 24/25 September. The photo shows Conference Chairwoman Prof Ursula Eicker from the University of Applied Sciences, Stuttgart, Germany (forth from left in first row) together with the international scientific committee consisting of researchers from Germany, Spain, Greece, Italy, France, China, Austria and Cyprus.

Solar Thermal or Photovoltaic Cooling? (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on July 27, 2012

This presentation was given by Professor Ursula Eicker (University of Applied Sciences, Stuttgart) at Intersolar 2012. It reports on the simulations studies undertaken by the University to compare the energy performance and costs of solar thermal, PV and conventional cooling. Several case studies are referenced, including test installations in Germany, Spain, Cyprus and Egypt.

Europe: InSun Project Showcases Concentrating Collectors for Process Heat

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 30, 2012

 inSun Project 1 April was the starting day of the EU FP 7 Project InSun (Industrial Process Heat by Solar Collectors) coordinated by zafh.net, the Centre for Applied Research on Sustainable Energy Technology at the University of Applied Sciences, Stuttgart, Germany. The participants of the project want to show to the public how to integrate flat plate, parabolic trough and Fresnel collectors into different processes and at different temperature levels. The project will run until March 2015 and has a budget of EUR 4.1 million. The owners of the pilot plants will receive back 50 % of their investment costs from that money.
