This presentation was created by ergSol a “U.S. based provider of complete and customized solar thermal system solutions”. The presentation looks at market potential, applications and technologies of solar thermal. ErgSol’s positive outlook on the market potential for solar thermal is based on their analysis that as the supply of fossil fuels dwindle, and consumers become more wary of their environmental impact, solar thermal will have the potential to expand its share of the renewable energy market.
This presentation was made by Werner B. Koldehoff at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) workshop "Solar Thermal Thailand" held in Berlin on March 2012. It presents the status of solar thermal industry in Germany and worldwide to analyse the potential develoment of the industry in Thailand.
This document was presented at the ECOWAS Solar Thermal Energy Capacity Building and Demonstration Programme conference held on 13 and 14 June 2014 in Praia, Cape Verde. The presentation was made by Ababacar Thiam from the Applied Energetics Laboratory of the Polytechnic Superior School of Cheikh Anta Diop University, Senegal.
The Argentina Ministry of Energy published this report in 2008. The publication provides an overview on solar energy including PV and thermal. The document reviews both technologies, explaining its applications, advantages, existing legislation and potential uses in Argentina.
The report identifies as main barriers to the further development of solar in Argentina the legislation and the institutional framework, the financial incentives as well as the lack of social and technical infrastructures and knowledge.
This presentation was given by Werner Weiss of the AEE Institute for Sustainable Technologies, and summarises the potential for further development of the solar thermal energy sector in developing countries. Although solar thermal markets Africa and Asia (excluding China and Japan) currently lag behind Europe in terms of size, there is a lot of potential for their further development.
Delivered by the University of Malta’s Robert N. Farrugia at Malta’s annual Solar Energy Markets conference, this presentation attempts to quantify the potential for SWH growth in Malta up to 2020. With 10,000 solar water heaters installed in Malta prior to 2008, government grant schemes in following years - culminating in a 40% subsidy for the cost of a heater by 2010 - have significantly increased installations.
This presentation was given by Riccardo Battisti of Ambiente Italia at the joint 2012 Annual Conference of Euroheat & Power and the Renewable Heating & Cooling European Technology Platform. Battisti gives a sprawling assessment of current developments in Solar District Heating across Europe, while looking to the future to suggest how further progress can be made.
This presentation by Abdelali Dakkina (Moroccan Centre for the Development of Renewable Energies, CDER) summarises Morocco’s multifaceted approach to facilitating market development for Solar Water Heaters. With 200,000m2 solar collectors already installed in 2009, the government estimates a potential capacity for 3,000,000m2 by 2020 if the correct environment is fostered.
This is an interview with Kutay Ülke from the company Ezinç. Ezinç is one of the main collector and storage tank producers in Turkey. Kutay Ülke speaks about the company products and training activities. He also explains the development of the Turkish solar thermal market even if there are no incentives from the government.
