The South African Solar Thermal Technology Road Map (2014)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on December 5, 2014

This document illustrates the strategies of the South African Solar Thermal Technology Roadmap (SA STTRM), a project within the South African Solar Thermal Technology Platform (SA-STTP) which supports the use of solar energy sources for applications such as water heating, (solar) cooling, process heat and low temperature steam.

Solar Thermal and Concentrated Solar Power Barometer (2014)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 31, 2014

This report published by the French organization EurObserv’ER provides an overview of the Solar Thermal and Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) markets in Europe in 2013.  The first section of the report is dedicated to CSP. After analyzing the global and European markets, the barometer focuses on the development of the CSP technologies in Spain, Italy and France.  The second part covers the solar thermal market.  The barometer explains that for the 5th year in a row the European solar thermal sector is facing a slowdown. In 2013, the market decreased by 13.2% compared to 2012.

IPCC special report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation – Direct Solar Energy (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 18, 2012

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)’s special report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation contains a dedicated chapter on Direct Solar Energy. This gives a synopsis of the state-of-the-art and possible future scenarios of the full realisation of direct solar energy’s potential for mitigating climate change. It includes a detailed analysis of the different solar technologies, including dedicated sections on passive and active solar heating and cooling, and concentrated solar power (CSP).
