Investigation of Solar Heating Systems for Industrial Applications in Northern Ethiopia (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 21, 2011

This is a presentation made during the 2011 ISES World Congress in Kassel, Germany, by the researchers M. B. Kahsay, R. Cherkos and I.P. da Silva.

A research had been conducted in several industrial facilities in order to assess the impact of solar applications on industrial processes, especially on those requiring extensive use of hot water and heating. Based on the data provided by the solar energy system employed, the researchers could come up with an economic analysis of solar thermal applications for industrial use.

Solar Cooling. A Review of Technology, and Feasibility Study for Ager Sectus Winery, Blenhein, New Zealand (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on July 21, 2011

This document reports the results of a study undertaken at the Ager Sectus Winery, near Blenheim, in New Zealand. The study looked at different solar cooling technologies and their possible use in the winery.

The document starts by explaining the different solar cooling technologies (PV, heat engine, absorption chiller, etc). Solar thermal absorption cooling is the most popular air-conditioning application and is used in different parts of the world. The performance of the systems is still variable, but the average payback period is of 15-20 years.
