Building a Solar Future – Recovering America’s Homes, Businesses and Industry with Solar Energy (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 16, 2015

This report was put out in 2010 by Environment America Research & Police Center. The basis of this report is America’s potential and how the goal should be set to obtain 10 percent or more total energy consumption from the sun by 2030 using solar technology. Technologies described to accomplish this include: concentrating solar power, solar water heaters, solar space heating/cooling, and passive solar design. Through the use of these technologies, it can affect homes, businesses, transportation and entire communities.

Market Assessment of Solar Water Heating Systems in Five Potential States/NCR Region (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 6, 2012

This report is a deliverable of the “Global Solar Water Heating Transformation and Strengthening Initative”, jointly funded by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the International Copper Association. In India, the commitment for SWH deployment has been supported by the government’s Ministry of New and Renewable Energy (MNRE).

Solar Water Heating Systems: A Review of Global Experiences (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 29, 2012

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.

Training Course on Solar District Heating (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 23, 2011

This document comprises training material developed in the framework of the SDHtake-off project with the support of Intelligent Energy Europe Programme. It has been designed as a “pool” of information to be used by all training organizations. It gives a broad overview of the solar thermal technologies employed for district heating, their characteristics as well as the legislative and technical requirements that are applicable in the EU.

Success Factors in Solar District Heating (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 31, 2011

The 'SDHtake-off - Solar District Heating in Europe' project is a EU-funded project (under the European Commission Programme IEE Intelligent Energy Europe)supporting the market rollout of solar district heating in Europe. It started on July 2009 and runs for a period of three years. This document is one of its deliverables, describing the development of SDH capacities in Europe as a result of the existing policies and incentives.

Heat Plan Denmark (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 29, 2010

This document explains a study carried out by the company Rambøll Denmark and the Aalborg University about the Danish district heating market and technologies.

The study was presented at the District Energy Climate Summit held parallel to the COP 15, the United Nations Climate Change Conference that took place in Denmark in December 2009.

The document reviews Danish policies, legislations and political targets set in the past to what regards the use of renewables. It also mentions different district heating projects with geothermal, CHP, solar thermal and others.
