Solar Thermal Systems (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on January 2, 2012

This is a presentation by Murat Aydemir from the company Viessmann Middle East. The presentation was given during the Green Building Conference in Dubai in 2008.

Solar Thermal Energy. An Industry Report (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 25, 2011

This is a document providing information and comparisons between solar thermal energy and photovoltaics (PV) or fossil energy, like coal, on an industrial level. The document explores the successes and challenges faced by some major EU companies in this business area.

Low Carbon Future (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 24, 2011

This is an overview presented by the Southern Africa Solar Thermal and Electricity Association (SASTELA) concerning the potential, developments and future perspectives for both solar thermal and PV energy in Africa, especially in South Africa. The main objective is to develop and interconnect the African nascent grid to the EU electrical grid by 2050.

Following a brief presentation of SASTELA’s 10 objectives, the document provides some context information linked to the CSP (concentrating solar power) potential of Africa and the main activities under development.

Solar Energy: Let’s Look at the World with Different Eyes (2006)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 3, 2011

This is a presentation on different solar energy technologies, including photovoltaics and thermal. After a brief schematisation on what is the solar energy and how it can be used, the author explains the main differences between passive and active solar systems.

Solar Energy in Argentina (2007)

This document, published by INENCO Instituto UNSa-CONICET (Instituto de Investigación en Energías No Convencionales), provides an overview of solar energy in Argentina.

PV-Thermal Roadmap (2006)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 3, 2010

This is a guide for the development and market introduction of PV-Thermal (PVT) technology in Europe. The guide is one of the deliverables of the PVT Forum project, part of the EU-supported project PV-Catapult, a Coordination Action within the 6th Framework Programme.

PVT technology is a solar energy device using PV as a thermal absorber. By using the heat generated in the PV, a PVT device generates not only electrical, but also thermal energy.
