This report from the District Department of the Environment, Washington DC’s local environmental agency, details how local citizens can use the city’s Renewable Energy Incentive Program (REIP) to receive incentives for using solar thermal systems. Further information on solar thermal incentives worldwide can be found here.
This report comes from The Cadmus Group, and provides information on the organizations research into and plans for expanding the use of solar thermal water heating throughout the Pacific North-West United States. It is a good example of how businesses are approaching the solar thermal market moving forward, and what successes and obstacles they see in the future.
This document was prepared in 2007 by the University of Gavle. The document gives a detailed introduction to solar thermal power, as well as descriptions of various energy applications and active and passive solar heating systems.
The report breaks down in detail the different types of solar thermal systems and collectors. Charts, graphs and photos show the various examples listed.
This report was prepared by the Canadian Solar Industries Association and provides a basic overview of solar pool heating systems specific to Canada.
Benefits of using solar pool heating systems are explained in the report as well as advantages of solar vs. gas heaters and heat pumps.
The document gives five reasons why Canadians should use solar heating; Solar saves on pool heating costs, solar extends your swimming season, solar equipment is durable, solar requires less maintenance and solar energy is good for the environment.
This presentation was created by Andy Walker of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for use by the San Francisco solar program. It focuses on solar installation safety practices and solar thermal technology, starting on p. 41.
This report was from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) Annual Meeting in October, 2009. The report is broken down to cover state incentives & policy trends, solar installation trends, net metering & interconnection updates & trends, and workforce development and training. For current policies that are mentioned to withstand solar growth, they mention the Energy Improvement and Reinvestment Act (part of the federal “bailout bill” in 2008) and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (part of the “stimulus bill” in 2009).
This was a study prepared by the International Energy Agency (IEA) in 2002. The study documented the collector areas previously installed in the 22 IEA member countries and to identify the contribution of solar plants to the supply of energy and how it cut down on CO2 emissions. It has all the member countries listed with the total collector area, for different types of solar thermal systems, with energy savings equivalent.
