District Heating, Training and Education
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.
This report was prepared on the framework of the Soltherm Project. It aims to provide recommendations and guidelines for any party (local authorities, energy utilities, consultants and energy agencies) involved or interested in market enlargement actions for solar heating products in Europe.
The document is based on experience and best practices from previous campaigns and market stimulation activities. It also included promotion and publicity opportunities for both demand and supply side.
This is a template document used for inspections in solar water heating systems.
This template document was produced in the framework of the MED-ENEC Project (Energy Efficiency in the Construction Sector), an EU funded project promoting cooperation between EU and MEDA countries in energy efficiency.
This short inspection checklist includes different sections on general data about the system, visual inspection, testing and measurements, user opinion and action list.
This Code of Practice was published by the New Zealand Solar Industries Association (SIA) to provide guidance to manufacturers, suppliers, and purchasers of solar hot water systems on manufacturing and installation standards to be observed in New Zealand, especially for household installations.
The California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE) developed a Solar Water Heating Pilot Programme, following the launch of the California Solar Initiative (CSI) in 2006, intended to promote the greenhouse gas emissions reduction by lowering the usage of natural gas and electricity for water heating.
