Solar Thermal Energy Solutions (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 8, 2010

As heat accounts for almost 50% of the final energy demand in the EU, the use of solar thermal technologies should be considered as a very valuable option for EU member States when drafting the national renewable action plans, resulting from the so-called RES 2020 Directive (2009/28/EC).

Report - National Workshop on Solar Thermal Power Generation (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on July 30, 2009

This is a report from the 2008 Indian national workshop on solar thermal power generation. The workshop was sponsored by the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy and discussed various issues related to solar thermal generation in India.

The report recognises that India faces a significant gap between electricity demand and supply. One of the options to close this gap is through solar energy. However, before solar thermal is a viable alternative for the Indian energy supply, some obstacles need to be overcome.

Solar Thermal Generation: A Sustainable Intervention to Improve SAPP's Diminishing Generation Surplus Capacity (2007)

Submitted by Hans Craen on July 9, 2009

This paper from 2007 looks into the energy needs of the Southern African Power Pool (SAPP) which is a consortium of countries in Southern Africa represented by their national power utility companies. The paper indicates that the critical concern for this region is that the electricity demand cannot be met beyond 2010.
