Optimised Design of Hot Water Storage in Solar Thermal Cooling Facilities (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on August 3, 2009

This document from 2008 looks into the efficiency of the design of hot water storage in solar thermal cooling facilities in single family buildings. Solar thermal installations, and in particular oversized facility elements, could result in higher costs and a lower than anticipated performance.
