Renewable Energies for Remote Areas and Islands (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 11, 2014

The Renewable Energy Technology Deployment, a sub-group of the International Energy Agency with the mandate to accelerate the market introduction and deployment of renewable energy technologies, issued in 2012 a report on the possibility of deploying renewable energy technologies into remote islands and regions. The communities studied in the report live in different climate conditions and latitudes, from Alaska to Spain, from Japan to Ecuador, but face similar problems in terms of distance from more populated areas. The report shows technical, economic and energy issues facing remote areas; it provides examples, perspectives and inspiration on how to develop sustainable energy strategies, ultimately reducing long-term costs of energy.

Solar Heating Plants (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 20, 2011

This is a presentation made by Jan Olof Dalenbäck, Professor at Chalmers University of Technology, during the International Solar District Heating Workshop that took place in Graz, Austria, in March 2011.

The presentation provides a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of solar heating in Europe. The main threat is the lack of incentives and knowledge from decision makers and consumers about this technology.
