Brazilian Scenarios of Solar Energy Applications Using SWERA Outputs (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 9, 2015

There is a large potential for a variety of solar energy, and in particular solar thermal, applications in the country of Brazil. This research paper uses data from the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) Solar and Wind Energy Resource Assessment (SWERA) to analyze the overlap of solar averages with other geographic and socio-economic data.

Solar thermal water heating for residential purposes is the most widely used solar application in Brazil.

Solar Thermal Industry National Status and Projections (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 6, 2015

This presentation discusses the current status of solar thermal energy in the United States and its projected future for the next 5-10 years. Focusing on solar water heating (SWH) systems and solar pool heating (SPH) systems, this presentation touches on both residential and commercial uses for solar thermal energy. It also delves into the different renewable energy programs from each state including which states provide rebates and incentives for using solar thermal energy.

Solar Energy in Spain (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 6, 2015

The solar potential in Spain is the highest in Europe because of its privileged location and climate.  Solar energy offers many advantages with respect to conventional energy, since it deals with a stream of energy that is free, clean and limitless.

Canada: Solar Vision 2025: Beyond Market Competitiveness (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 25, 2015

This report issued by the Canadian Solar Industries Association (CanSIA) gives an overview of the evolution of the solar energy market in Canada until 2025.  The report covers both the solar photovoltaic and the solar thermal sectors.

Solar energy has numerous advantages. It will be economically competitive, will create employment and production costs will be reduced.

For the solar thermal sector, CanSIA believes that by 2025 the solar thermal industry can reach a capacity between 8 GWth and 15 GWth and has identified 3 different scenarios.

Integrating Solar Thermal in Buildings – A quick guide for Architects and Builders

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on February 5, 2015

This guide for Architects and Builders aims at promoting SWH systems to architects and builders from developing countries and help them consider integrating SWH applications in their designs and projects. Intending to be a useful handbook, this “Guide” provides a compact overview of the technology and its main characteristics; as well as the main requirements to be considered for its application in different types of construction projects and in different geographical locations.

It was elaborated in order to increase awareness about SWH among important stakeholders, such as architects and builders; and encourage the use of this type of solar systems. Hence, it gives a synopsis of the technology and general requirements for integration in buildings. 

The South African Solar Thermal Technology Road Map (2014)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on December 5, 2014

This document illustrates the strategies of the South African Solar Thermal Technology Roadmap (SA STTRM), a project within the South African Solar Thermal Technology Platform (SA-STTP) which supports the use of solar energy sources for applications such as water heating, (solar) cooling, process heat and low temperature steam.
