Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 21, 2015

This report was written by Professor Ashok Gadgil of the Environmental Energy Technologies Division at the University of California. The professor and a team of student researchers set out to design a solar thermal water heating system for use by native populations in Guatemala, and the document reports on their success.

The Development of a Solar Thermal Water Purification, Heating, and Power Generation System: A Case Study (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 31, 2015

This report was written by Jerome Johnson and Michael Cropp of the Center for Innovation and Development at the University of Wisconsin. The paper reports on their research into the design and implementation of a water purifier that is powered by solar thermal, which also uses that heat for heating and power purposes.

Design of a 2.5kW Low Temperature Stirling Engine for Distributed Solar Thermal Generation (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 25, 2015

This research paper comes from Mike He and Seth Sandersy of the University of California – Berkeley. It reports on their efforts to design a Stirling engine for distributed solar thermal applications. The design of the engine proposed has a solar thermal system incorporates thermal energy storage as a buffer between input solar energy and output generation. The researchers do this to provide a stable level of generation that is controllable and schedulable.
