Spain: Canary Islands Publish Guide on Hotel Solar Use

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 21, 2015
Reference Hotel Canary IslandThe regional government of the Canary Islands has published a guide on increasing the use of solar thermal in the local hotel sector. The government presented and distributed the study TRNSHOTEL, an analysis and proposals to optimise the solar thermal energy consumption in the Canary Islands hotel sector, during public seminars on 26 and 27 November 2014. The study can be a useful means of developing solar water heating technology in a region boasting a huge tourism sector but great untapped solar potential. The figure shows the 146-room hotel which was used as a reference throughout the study and was simulated in TRYNSYS by the Instituto Tecnológico de Canarias (ITC) to analyse building orientation and list the different solar energy yields and cooling loads (see the attached TRNSHOTEL PDF).

Solar Air Conditioning Course (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 20, 2010

This presentation from the Canary Islands Technological Institute (Instituto Tecnológico de Canarias S.A.) in Spain is an example of a presentation outlining and promoting the structure of solar air conditioning training courses.

The presentation goes through the content of the courses, which are integrated in the framework of the SOLCO Project (Removal of non-Technological Barriers to Solar Cooling Technology across Southern European Islands).

Removal of Non-Technological Barriers to Solar Cooling Technologies Across Southern European Islands (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 19, 2010

This report from 2009 provides an overview of the SOLCO project. Supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Commission, this project tries to look into ways of removing barriers that hamper the dissemination of solar cooling plants in European Southern regions such as the Canary Islands, Crete, Cyprus and Sicily, where the high solar radiation is ideal for solar cooling implementation.

Solar Cooling: Overview and Recommendations (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on April 13, 2009

This Technical Brochure, published in 2009, presents the final results of the SOLCO project. This project promotes, among other objectives, the widespread use of solar technologies and energy savings due to solar cooling applications in the building sector. The SOLCO project focuses on solar cooling technology across southern European islands.
