Switzerland: Parabolic Trough Collectors Produce Heat for Dairy

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 22, 2014
LESAewz’s latest solar project as an energy service company (ESCO) is the solar plant at dairy company Lataria Engiadinaisa SA (LESA), which is located at an altitude of 1,700 m in the Swiss Alps. With its 115 m² of parabolic trough collectors by NEP Solar, the solar plant heats thermo-oil up to a temperature of 180 °C in order to provide heat for steam production. The investment of Swiss Franc (CHF) 500,000 was jointly financed by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy and ewz. The heat is sold to LESA at the same full cost as steam production by the dairy´s installed oil boiler. The project won the Swiss Solar Prize in 2012.

Germany: World Map of Solar Process Heat Collector Industry 2014

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 31, 2014
World Map Process HeatThere is enormous demand for industrial heat in the temperature range between 100 and 250 °C all around the world, and solar thermal technologies are said to play an important role in covering this demand over the next decades. A joint project by magazine Sun & Wind Energy and German agency solrico was to find out which companies offer solar process heat collectors, what technology they focus on and how many commercial projects they have already realised. The results of the global survey now make up the first World Map of the Solar Process Heat Collector Industry, which was published in the March edition of Sun & Wind Energy and is also available for download on solrico´s website

Europe: Solar Thermal Energy Expands to Industrial Processes

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 1, 2013

During a Technology Workshop on Solar Process Heat for Industry organised by the Solar Thermal Technology Panel of the RHC-Platform, the European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating and Cooling, European experts presented the latest developments and insights into collector technology, as well as solar thermal system integration for industrial processes, ranging from drying to pasteurisation and sterilisation. Around 60 participants from the industry, research, industry associations and EU institutions attended the workshop held at the Renewable Energy House in Brussels on 15 March 2013.
