IEA SHC: How to Turn Historic Structures into Nearly Zero Energy Buildings

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 17, 2017
Villa CastelliMore than one-fourth of all residential buildings in Europe date from before 1945. Over the past decade, preservationists have taken to the idea of renovating historic structures in an energy-efficient manner. The planned IEA SHC task titled Deep Renovation of Historic Buildings Towards Lowest Possible Energy Demand and CO2 Emission intends to find the best solutions to this challenge. The photo shows the Villa Castelli at Lake Como in Italy. The energy requirements of the building have been reduced and the remaining demand has been met by a heat pump and PV-generated electricity.

Resource/Cost Estimates for Solar Thermal Space/Water Heating 2010 and 2020 ((2004)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 19, 2015

The Solar heat resource is dependent in the first instance on the insolation falling on the surface of Ireland. The usable power generated by solar panels will vary depending on latitude, time of year and weather conditions. According to the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation, current technology produces per square metre of solar panel between 300 and 450 thermal kWh/year. 

Denmark/Belgium: Winner of Video Research Competition 2014

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 29, 2014
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).

Renewable Energies for Remote Areas and Islands (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 11, 2014

The Renewable Energy Technology Deployment, a sub-group of the International Energy Agency with the mandate to accelerate the market introduction and deployment of renewable energy technologies, issued in 2012 a report on the possibility of deploying renewable energy technologies into remote islands and regions. The communities studied in the report live in different climate conditions and latitudes, from Alaska to Spain, from Japan to Ecuador, but face similar problems in terms of distance from more populated areas. The report shows technical, economic and energy issues facing remote areas; it provides examples, perspectives and inspiration on how to develop sustainable energy strategies, ultimately reducing long-term costs of energy.

Europe: Conferences for New Solar Thermal Applications

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 12, 2013

The first of half of this year will see many conferences and fairs on solar thermal technologies at locations all around the world (see the Calendar of Events): The solarthermalworld.org database alone shows 61 events in 31 countries. Meanwhile, the events have become more diversified – a testimony to the many different application areas of solar thermal. With this news piece, solarthermalworld.org will present some particularly interesting events, which focus on solar district heating, renewable heat, process heat and the latest technology. Please let us know if you think the database is missing any important solar heating and cooling dates (epp@solrico.com).
