IEA-RETD: Lessons Learned from 21 Renewable Projects in Industry

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on July 28, 2017
Case Study MapThree years after the International Renewable Energy Agency underlined in its June 2014 Renewable Energy in Manufacturing study the great potential for using renewables in industry, the International Energy Agency has published a comprehensive report on the same topic. It is titled Fostering renewable energy integration in the industry and consists of several documents divided into two parts: a review of 21 case studies on renewable systems integrated into industrial processes and a policy section identifying eight issues which may attract or deter industrial stakeholders intending to deploy renewable production assets at their facilities. Commissioned by the IEA Renewable Energy Technology Deployment Program (IEA-RETD), the publication was lead-authored by French-based ENEA Consulting. It is one of the milestones towards an IEA Insights Paper on Renewables in Industry planned to come out in November 2017.

Solar Thermal Systems in Industry (2014)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on January 2, 2015

This presentation was given by Stéphane Joblot of E-Sol, a company specialized in renewable energy studies, during a workshop organized in the framework of the programme of the Alsace region, with the support of  ADEME, the French Environment Agency.  After giving a general overview of various solar thermal techonololgies and applications, the speaker shares the findings from a case study which analyzed the process needs of an agri-food company in the city of Colmar. This company operates 5 days a week and needs 4.000 liters of water at 60° C daily.

The Potential Application of Residential Cooling in the UK and the Role of Thermal Energy Storage Technologies (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 17, 2012

This paper is taken from the proceedings of the 2nd PALENC conference and 28th AIVC conference on Building Energy Cooling and Advanced Ventilation Technologies in the 21st Century. It explores the potential cooling demand in a dwelling in the UK and the potential use of solar thermal cooling systems.  As UK Building regulations demand better insulated and more airtight new buildings, the demand for cooling as begun to escalate in UK new build dwellings.

Development of the Solar Thermal Market in the APEC Economies (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 28, 2012

This report was undertaken by the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Energy Working Group in 2009, with the objective to improve the development of the solar energy market within sponsoring APEC economies. The report identifies the most efficient technologies, the barriers to further market develpment, and mechanisms needed to overcome them. It also provides a case study of a Coopper Electrowinning Plant in Chile.

Building Integration of Concentrating Systems for Solar Cooling Applications (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 19, 2011

This document was presented at the 2nd European Conference on Polygeneration (30 March-1 April 2011, Tarragona, Spain) by the researchers D. Chemisana, J. Lopez-Villada, A. Coronas and J. I. Rossel.

It analysis the energy consumption of buildings from Mediterranean countries and the solutions offered by solar cooling and solar concentrator systems. The paper consists of a comparative analysis between two cooling systems: one with evacuated tube collectors and a single-effect absorption chiller, the other with a solar concentrating system and double-effect absorption chiller.
