Worldwide capacity of solar thermal energy greatly underestimated (2004)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 16, 2015

This statement was released by the International Energy Association (IEA). The IEA’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme and major solar thermal trade associations released these new statistics in GWth, rather than square meters. They state this as the reason for the underestimation of the solar thermal capacity. By using square meters of collector area, you’re not using a unit comparable with any other energy sources.

Case Study on Measures to Support Solar Water Heating (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 14, 2015

This paper was prepared by the research center, LEPII, and the World Energy Council in 2007. The report breaks down the total installation capacity, worldwide and identifies the largest installing countries in the world by per capita, cost and total systems. It also includes case studies on individual countries including Austria, China and Mexico. The case studies define the market, barriers, incentive measures and main issues. Te main issues talk about market growth and what’s stunting it or what is needed to grow it further.

On the Rise – Solar Thermal Power and the Fight Against Global Warming (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 13, 2015

This report was put together by Environment America Research and Policy Center in 2008 and is about how the use of solar thermal technologies can help stop the threat of global warming. Electricity generation accounts for more than a third of America’s emissions of global warming pollution. Using concentrating solar power (CSP) can make a large contribution toward reducing global warming pollution in the United States. This document states the capacity in the States to expand its solar thermal market.

Solar Thermal Incentive Program Manual (October 2014)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on October 23, 2014

This document provides details on the Solar Thermal (ST) Program funded by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to financially support the substitution of electrically heated domestic hot water systems with solar thermal systems. The present document is an update of an existing 2010 programme, available here. The new version provides additional details on general program rules and system requirements.

Solar Heat Worldwide - Markets and Contribution to Energy Supply 2010 (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 21, 2012

This report has been written by Werner Weiss and Franz Mauthner in contribution to the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC). It documents the solar thermal capacity installed in 55 countries, and ascertains the contribution of solar thermal systems to the supply of energy and the CO¬2 emissions avoided as a result of operating these systems.

DESERTEC: Clean Power from Deserts. The Global Challenge of Energy, Water and Climate Security (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 20, 2011

This presentation was done by Dr. Gerhard Knies, DESERTEC Project Promotor for The Club of Rome and co-ordinator of TREC, during the Euromed Solar Workshop on EU-MENA Cooperation on Solar Power, held in Jordan.

Potential of Solar Thermal in Europe (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on October 23, 2009

This report from 2009 has been commissioned by the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF) and looks into the potential of solar thermal in the European Union. The objective of the study is to provide the European Commission and the Members States with information on how solar thermal energy can contribute to reach the renewable energy target.
