Study on a Solar Heating System using Low Temperature Radiators (2013)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 25, 2015

The University of Constantine, in Algeria, conducted a study on a solar heating systems using low temperature radiators, which  was presented at the 16th International Thermal Days conference taking place in Marrakech in November 2013.

The objective of the study was to do a simulation of a solar heating system using solar collectors connected to oversized central heating radiators in order to function at low temperature. In addition to collectors and radiators, they have also used a water storage tank and an additional energy source.

Analysis of Austrian SDH Plants Constructed in the Framework of a National Funding Programme (2014)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 5, 2015

This presentation was given by F. Mauthner of AEE INTEC at the 2nd international Solar District Heating Conference in Hamburg on 3 – 4 June 2014.  It outlines the evolution of District Heating in Austria since the 1950’s with an emphasis on solar district heating (SDH).  In 2013, there were 25 SDH plants of over 500 m², representing 35.000 m² of collector area.  The presentation also provides information on national funding programmes, which cover 50% of the additional costs a solar thermal application require.  Up until now, approximately 90 Mio Euro funding has been provided.

Optimization of a Low Temperature Solar District Heating System by Integrating Space and Domestic Hot Water Loads (2014)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 27, 2015

This presentation on the optimization of a low temperature solar district heating system was given by Canmet ENERGY at the  2nd International Solar District Heating Conference in Hamburg in June 2014.  After a short introduction on Solar District Heating in Canada, the presentation focuses mainly on the only solar district heating site nationwide, named Drake Landing,  and shares information on its capacity, performances and technology.  The speaker also provides the results of a comparison study where domestic hot water is supplied by a standalone SDHW like th

Designing Solar Thermal System for Selected Industrial Processes (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 15, 2012

This is a presentation by Stefan Heß of the Fraunhofer ISE, given during the International Conference Solar Process Heat that took place in March 2011 in Austria.

Industrial process heat accounts for more than 20% of the final energy demand in Germany. 33% is needed at temperatures below 150°C, which can be easily achieved with solar thermal collector. The presentation explains why solar thermal is not used for industrial process heat in Europe. Financial restrictions and complex system integration are considered to be the main barriers to the development of this technology.

India: New Incentive Guidelines for low and medium Temperature Applications

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on June 28, 2010

 Federal Government of India” On the 17th of June, the Federal Government of India announced a new set of financing guidelines intended for off-grid solar systems under the National Solar Mission. Among other technologies, these new guidelines consider both low and medium temperature solar thermal systems, as well as off-grid PV systems. Photo: MNRE

Solar thermal energy systems in Australia (2006)

Submitted by Hans Craen on March 30, 2009

This document, published in 2006, provides an overview of the available solar thermal technologies in Australia. Starting with underlining the potential Australia has in solar thermal development, the document also concludes that Australia has a low market penetration of only 5%.
