Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on December 12, 2014

This document on solar district heating (SDH) was presented by Adam Reed, research associate at the University of Colorado Boulder, at the Western Energy Policy Research Conference held in San Francisco on 4-5 September 2014.

New Technologies in Spain (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 17, 2011

This document was prepared by Technology Review. It provides an idea of the evolution cycle of solar industry (PV and thermal) since its early ages in both Spain and USA. The analysis focuses on technologies, production and storage capacities, investment costs and legal framework conditions.

The document mentions as well projects currently in the making which allow understanding the progress made in terms of technologies, legal framework, payback time, installed capacity and the prospects for the Spanish solar industry.

Barriers to Technology Diffusion: the Case of Solar Thermal Technologies (2006)

Submitted by Hans Craen on March 27, 2009

This joint paper from the OECD and IEA (October 2006) looks into the different barriers that exist which prevent solar thermal technologies to deliver its real potential. Next to listing the barriers, the document also looks into means to overcome these, the existing technologies & markets and identifies best practices which can be used by policy makers in both industrialised and developing countries.

Three barriers to diffusion are analysed in more detail:

(1) Technical barriers,

(2) Economic barriers and

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on April 30, 2008

Published in January 2007, by EREC (European Renewable Energy Council), the document shows the ambitions of the European Renewable Energy Industry to reach the EU targets for 2020 for different sectors, including electricity, heating & cooling, and biofuels.
It provides roadmaps for each sector, predicting its development and the conditions under which progress can be made.

Concentrating Solar Power from Research to Implementation

Submitted by admin on April 22, 2008

This document from 2007, released by the European Commission, refers projects, financed under the 6th EU Research Framework Programme (FP6), to boost the use of solar power technologies in Europe, as a part of the EU’s goal of achieving 20% share of renewable energies inits overall energy consumption by 2020 and a minimum 10% share of biofuels in overall EU transport petrol and diesel consumption by 2020. Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) is a clean energy that can help the EU to meet this 20% goal.
