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“.

Jakob Berg JohansenAs the winner of solarthermalworld.org’s Video Research Competition 2014, Jakob Berg Johansen has become the owner of a new iPad. The Research Assistant at the Technical University of Denmark, Department of Civil Engineering, Section for Building Energy, created an informative and illustrative video about his research project, Comtes, which runs between April 2012 and March 2016. Comtes is short for “combined development of compact thermal energy storage technologies” and is funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union (no 295568). This year’s video competition, the second of its kind, was again supported by the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF) and the Association of European Renewable Energy Research Centres (EUREC).
 

Germany: Winners of Solarthermalworld.org Research Competition

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 3, 2013

The winners of the first Solarthermalworld.org Research Video Competition received their awards at the international conference SHC 2013 in Freiburg in September 2013. The first prize – an iPad mini - went to Christine Tillmann, R&D Engineer at the German Institute of Air Handling and Refrigeration, ILK, in Dresden for her video titled “Thermally-driven cold generation - air-cooled absorption chiller”. Daniel Mugnier (centre) from French company Tecsol accepted the prize on behalf of Tillmann, as both researchers cooperate within Task 48 of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling programme headed by Mugnier. Jan Steinweg (left) from the German Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH) came in second, with the prize being a free conference ticket. Together with his colleague Francis Kliem, they had produced a video explaining in clear words the relevance of “Pipe-internal Re-circulation in Storage Connections”  for tank efficiency and the measures to avoid it.
