District Heating, Pool Heating
This PowerPoint was developed by KeySpan in 2008. It covers why they promote solar thermal water heating in the Northeast, applications, market barriers and a forecast for the future. The presentation introduces the different solar thermal programs that KeySpan offers including domestic hot water, pool heating, space heating, process hot water and solar assisted cooling. It also mentions the different applications where all this solar thermal energy can be used and what type of savings will be seen.
This report issued by the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) gives an overview of the evolution of the solar energy market in Canada until 2025. The report covers both the solar photovoltaic and the solar thermal sectors.
Solar energy has numerous advantages. It will be economically competitive, will create employment and production costs will be reduced.
For the solar thermal sector, CanSIA believes that by 2025 the solar thermal industry can reach a capacity between 8 GWth and 15 GWth and has identified 3 different scenarios.
Prepared jointly by India’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE) and the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), this report gives an overview of the Solar Water Heating Systems (SWHS) market in India over the last decade, and counterpoints it against broader global developments. After looking at global trends in market development, the document gives summaries of UNDP-GEF and REEEP experiences of SWHS projects. This includes summaries of specific projects over the last five years.
This report was prepared within the framework of the Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC) of the International Energy Agency (IEA) as an update of the one issued in 2009. The report documents the solar thermal capacity installed in the important markets worldwide and its contribution in terms of supply of energy and CO2 emissions reduction. Documented collectors comprise unglazed collectors, glazed flat-plate and evacuated tube collectors with water as the energy carrier, as well as glazed and unglazed air collectors.
This presentation provided by Austria Solar in 2007 offers relevant information about the Austrian solar thermal market, its evolution, the existing subsidies, publicity campaigns, training courses, together with the key figures that proof the remarkable development it has achieved in the last years.
This document produced by the Spanish IDAE (Instituto para la Diversificación y Ahorro de la Energía) in 2007 explains what is solar thermal energy, its benefits and applications, providing at the same time practical information like for instance the incentive programmes existing in Spain (for both single family houses and hotels) and the prices of solar thermal equipment.
The video shows the use of solar thermal energy for heating in Europe. Examples from Denmark and Spain show the use in different climates. Interviews with users and manufacturers give a good overview of this clean energy technology. The video is provided for free by the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign of the European Union.
