Solar Electric and Solar Thermal Energy: A Summary of Current Technologies (2014)

Submitted by Francesco Gattiglio on June 26, 2015

This document, written by Tayyebatossadat P. Aghaei of the Global Energy Network Institute (GENI), illustrates the different applications of solar thermal and photovoltaic technology. 

After a brief introduction on the history of solar energy, the document firstly explains the functioning of large scale solar thermal technology systems, differentiating between flat-plate collectors and concentrator collectors. This section includes also graphic representations of the different systems.

Clean Energy Action Plan Towards 50/50 by 2020 in the Bega Valley Shire (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 20, 2015

Clean Energy for Eternity, Inc. provides this thirty-seven page document to promote and stimulate relevant bodies to take appropriate action to reduce energy use and develop local clean energy generation projects.  The use of solar energy is a large portion of what the Clean Energy working group suggests as these “appropriate actions”.

Solar Heat Worldwide - Markets and Contribution to Energy Supply 2010 (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 21, 2012

This report has been written by Werner Weiss and Franz Mauthner in contribution to the International Energy Agency (IEA)’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC). It documents the solar thermal capacity installed in 55 countries, and ascertains the contribution of solar thermal systems to the supply of energy and the CO¬2 emissions avoided as a result of operating these systems.

CERN’s Ultra High Vacuum Flat Plate Solar Collector Markets and Applications (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 4, 2011

This is a presentation from the CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research) about solar thermal technologies and applications.

The presentation reviews the different market applications (hot water and heating, space heating and cooling, desalination, pool heating, industrial processes and electricity production). It also gives data on the European energy market and the market share of the different solar technologies. The document indicates the market drivers for solar thermal and the forecasts for the coming years.
