Integrated Unglazed Solar Panel Development (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 24, 2011

This is a presentation of the research done by the Environmental Energy Solutions Ltd. for the development and testing of their prototype solar heat system. The particularities consisted in the large, low cost solar collector integrated into the roof or wall cladding system and its integrated water sourced heat pump and thermal storage system. A prototype was installed on a house in Wellington, providing year-round performance data. This report was done with the support of the New Zealand Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority.

Technical Specifications for Solar Energy Installations (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 18, 2011

The Decree No. 314/010 was issued by the Uruguayan authorities with the purpose of outlining the minimal technical conditions to be met by solar thermal installations. It regulates the use of these technologies, also serving as a guideline for all users, with a main focus on durability, reliability and security requirements.

Canada: Solar Air Heating is strongest Sector

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on November 10, 2011

 Canadian Solar Thermal Market 20102010 was a good year for the solar thermal industry in Canada. The total newly installed collector area (brown line) grew by 54 %, from 129,418 to 199,491 m2. Air collector sales (red line) doubled and - for the first - overtook the solar swimming pool market (blue line), which is more or less stagnating. With 150 %, the segment of glazed solar water collectors (pink line) experienced the highest growth, although the 20,000 m2 sold in 2010 make it still a low-level market.

Solar Cooling Position Paper (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on November 4, 2011

This position paper is a deliverable of the Task 38 “Solar Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration” of the IEA Solar Heating & Cooling Programme. It describes the application of active solar heating and cooling technologies within the heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) system of buildings in the context of increasing energy efficiency requirements.

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on October 14, 2011

 Christian Vachon (left) and Hans Jørgen Christensen Canadian air collector manufacturer Enerconcept uses Danish know-how for the industrial version of its Luba collectors. On 1 July, CEO Christian Vachon (left) entered into an agreement with the owner of Danish company Solarventi, Hans Jørgen Christensen, allowing Enerconcept to use an air collector patent of the Scandinavians. The innovative technology has already been implemented in a major project in Quebec City.

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.

 

Switch to a Better Future. Accredited Dimplex Renewables Installer and Training Scheme (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on July 4, 2011

This is an example of a brochure about the Accredited Dimplex Renewables Installer and Training Scheme.

This programme offers specialised domestic heat pump installer training courses. The course receives accreditation from the Logic Certification and it is addressed to plumbing, heating, HVAC and M&E engineers wishing to expand into the air/ground source heat pump sector.

The brochure also includes an explanation about heat pumps and solar water heating and the benefits of using renewables.

Germany: T*Sol simulates Air Collector Systems

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 7, 2011

 T*SOL Pro 5.0” Air collector systems of Grammer can now be simulated and planned with the new version 5.0 of T*SOL Pro, the dynamic simulation programme for the design and planning of solar thermal systems, developed by German company Valentin Software. The programme is the result of a close collaboration with German air collector manufacturer Grammer Solar.
