This whitepaper was researched, written and published by Thermal Storage Solutions, LLC. It provides a cost-benefit analysis of using solar thermal space heating and thermal storage for new construction. The whitepaper argues that the main benefits of solar thermal are reducing energy costs and diminishing the carbon footprint of a system. The paper sets out to provide this by comparing residences with traditional heating systems and ones with solar thermal systems.
This presentation, prepared by Dr. Ir. Ing. Dick G. Klaren of Klaren International, proposes the use of a salinity gradient solar pond (SGSP) in coastal waters as renewable energy source for thermal desalination. The document was presented at the CWC Technical Seminars featured at the Saudi Water & Power Forum (SWPF), held between 12 and 14 January in Riyadh, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
This report was written by Kazimierz Szymocha of the Alberta Research Council. It reports on their prototype solar thermal air heating and storage system.
The system in question is both a space heating installation and a direct heat storage system. It stores heated air during the day and then releases it at night.
This document was prepared by the American Solar Roofing Company and explains building integrated solar thermal (BIST) designs.
This is a report prepared by the Minnesota Department of Commerce Office of Energy Security (OES) to the Legislature. It focuses on solar thermal technologies for domestic hot water and space heating. This legislation came about from concerns that the nationally recognized solar thermal certification organization, Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC), process was inadequately serving Minnesota’s solar thermal industry.
This report was released by the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy section of the U.S. Department of Energy in 2004. It highlights a large-scale solar thermal system installed at the Phoenix Federal Correctional Institution (FCI) and breaks down the statistical output.
This brochure was published by the Consortium Green Farming, which consists of 25 Dutch companies active in the horticulture technologies and provides support to development projects in East Africa.
This presentation was prepared by Xavier Dubuisson and presented at the Yerevan State University of Architecture and Construction, in Armenia. The presentation is part of the Inogate Project, a regional energy cooperation programme between the European Union and 11 partner countries in Eastern Europe, Caucasus and Central Asia.
