IEA SHC Solar Academy: Solar Planning in Times of Rapid City Growth

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 26, 2017
Royal Seaport StockholmJust as on Stockholm’s coastline shown in the photo, cities are seeing new neighbourhoods develop or old ones restored and expanded at a rapid pace. Urban planning is a highly complex issue, especially if it involves low-carbon living solutions and environmental regulations. The main objective of the international group of researchers working in Task 51, Solar Energy in Urban Planning, has been to “support planners, architects, and local and national authorities in creating urban areas with architecturally integrated solar solutions in mind.” In mid-September, task coordinator Maria Wall, Professor at the Energy and Building Design department of Sweden’s Lund University, and other researchers presented successful case studies and suitable planning and design tools during a webinar. A recording and the presentations from it are available at the IEA SHC Solar Academy page.
 

Performance of Water-in-Glass Evacuated Tube Solar Water Heaters (2005)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 30, 2011

This article was written by the researchers I. Budihardjo and G.L. Morisson form the University of New South Wales, Australia.

The goal of the research was to evaluate the performance of water-in-glass evacuated tube. A comparison was made with flat plate systems operating in Sydney, Australia.

The simulation programme TRNSYS was used to evaluate the performance and energy efficiency of the systems.
