Pakistan: UNIDO Suggests Policies for Renewables in Industrial Applications

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on January 27, 2017
At the request of the Pakistani government, the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) has launched a project titled Sustainable Energy Initiative for Industries in Pakistan to promote the adoption of renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies and services in Pakistan’s industries. But despite the country’s great energy demand and huge solar potential, the study says little about solar thermal usage 
 

Germany/Belgium: Container Solutions to Standardise Commercial Solar Thermal Systems

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 2, 2016
Aschoff SolarStandardisation and prefabrication of solar thermal systems remains key to the delivery of high quality, cost-optimised solutions. Solar pumping and refilling stations attached to and insulated with the storage tank have already been standard in residential systems in Central Europe. Current developments from German system supplier Aschoff Solar and Belgium system supplier Sunoptimo show that prefabricated solutions are also possible for large-scale, commercial systems between 50 m² and 2,000 m² of collector area. Both companies use containers equipped with a storage tank and all other hydraulic components. The photo shows the most current installation of Aschoff Solar at the Severin Sea Lodge in Mombasa, Kenya. The 260 m² vacuum tube installation on the roof provides hot water for the guest and staff lodges, with one container including the storage tank and the hydraulic.

Solar Thermal in Industries: Status and Perspectives (2012)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on January 30, 2015

This presentation was made by Werner B. Koldehoff at the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) workshop "Solar Thermal Thailand" held in Berlin on March 2012. It presents the status of solar thermal industry in Germany and worldwide to analyse the potential develoment of the industry in Thailand. 

Thailand: Prefabricated Container Solution Improves Quality in Tannery

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 9, 2013

Danish shoe producer ECCO runs the largest solar thermal installation in Thailand: 1,890 m² of vacuum tube collectors provide the company’s factory in Ayutthaya with up to 80 tons of hot water per day. Planned and installed by German engineering company Aschoff Solar, the process heat installation supplies the different tanning processes with water at temperatures between 35 and 70°C. The photo shows the three stackable containers, including the ready-to-use tanks, pump groups and heat exchangers prefabricated in Germany. The system offers a solar controller with graphical display and online remote control.

Thailand: “Many enterprises have become interested in the technology”

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 6, 2013

This January has already been the sixth time for the Thai government to announce the continuation of their incentive programme for commercial customers. Over the last five years, the installed collector area in Thailand has grown steadily while the quality of the installations has improved as well. Solarthermalworld.org spoke with Yongyuth Sawatdisawanee about the solar thermal market development in Thailand and the goals set for the next years. Sawatdisawanee is the Director of Technology Analysis and Assessment at Thailand’s Department of Alternative Energy Development and Efficiency (DEDE), a subdivision of Thailand’s Ministry of Energy. He has worked in the renewable energy field since 1980 and over the last ten years, he has taken a special interest in solar thermal technology.

Solar Thermal Solutions for Industrial Customers: German Engineering and High-Tech Components (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 17, 2012

This presentation was given by Professor Christopher Menke at the Hanoi Energy Expo in 2010. It gives a detailed overview of global solar thermal market development, including information on global and national capacity and market growth (for example an increase in collector installations in 2009 of 25% compared with 2008). A differentiation is made between the Thermosiphon systems preferred in Asian, African and ME countries; and the pumped systems that are more common in Europe, the US and Australia.

Thailand: Highly Interested Enterprises, But Low-Quality Systems

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 26, 2010

 solar systems in Thailand” 37 commercially installed solar thermal systems of between 50 and 500 m2 received subsidies in Thailand over the last two years. Nevertheless, the sector shows a lack of professional service to operate these solar systems at an optimum efficiency.
