Construction of Solar Collectors for Warm Water – Practical Guide (2014)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 5, 2015

WECF,  Women of Europe for a Common Future, has published a practical guide explaining how to build a cheap and efficient solar water heating system, using local knowledge and materials and which can be used all year long. The document provides information on the different parts of a solar water heater, on how to build solar collectors and a heat exchanger tank.  It also gives further information on other solar water heater models.

Europe/Asia: Solar Cooling Gains Traction

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on September 3, 2012

Large Japanese and Chinese companies have recently taken a greater interest in solar cooling. The photo shows an installation by Chinese company Jiangsu Huineng New Energy Technology (Huin), which started supplying solar cooling systems this year. New system kits help drive down costs, although investments in sorption chillers are still higher than for compression chillers. After the Intersolar Europe conference in Munich, Germany, and its dedicated solar cooling session, Uli Jakob, Vice President of the German sorption chiller association Green Chiller, noted: “Solar cooling was one of the highlights of the conference.”

Launch of ISOL Navigator: Asia moves up, while Europe lags behind

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 15, 2011

 ISOL Index of the regions” The ISOL Navigator has been launched at the Intersolar Europe in Munich at the 8th of June. The international study presents the current and future market development in 16 key solar heating and cooling countries. The ISOL Navigator is based on the “ISOL Index”, an international business climate index developed by German agency solrico at the beginning of 2010. This ISOL index is a point-based indicator (ranging from 0 to 100 points) showing the satisfaction of solar thermal manufacturers and system suppliers with current and expected market development. Company values are averaged to obtain country and regional indices.

Combined Solar Power and Desalination Plants: Update on the MED-CSD Project (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on May 14, 2009

This presentation from 2009 provides an update of the MED-CSD project. The main aim of this project is the assessment of the technico-economic potential of CSP for electricity and desalination in the Mediterranean region. The presentation first gives a global overview by linking the regions suffering from water scarcity with the global potential for concentrating solar power.
