2009 Updates and Trends – IREC

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on June 14, 2015

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).

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. 

Developments of Solar Thermal in China (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 18, 2012

This presentation was given as Tsinghua University in 2011, and gives a chronological overview of the rapid development of China's solar thermal market since 1978, where research first began. The research projects described in the presentation have successfully commercialised solar water heating, which had a 50.8% market share of Chinese water heating in 2008.

Solar Heating and Cooling in Austria - Status Report (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on May 3, 2012

This report - presented to the International Energy Agency Solar Heating and Cooling Programme in 2009 - gives an overview of the solar heating and cooling industry in Austria.

This includes an outline of the national and European regulatory environment, and the research programmes used to further technological development in the sector. Austrian public expenditure for energy research is specified as €31,886,023 in 2007, of which €826,852 was directed towards solar heating and cooling.

Technology Options of Solar Thermal Systems in South-East Asia – Lessons learned from Thailand and Vietnam (2012)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 23, 2012

This power point presentation - given by Dr Ing Christoph Menke (University of Applied Sciences, Trier) – outlines the technology options and market potential for solar thermal systems in South-East Asia. After an overview of global solar thermal technology, it outlines the potential for solar water heating in Thailand, the temperature ranges for different food industrial processes, and gives an overview of the subsidy programmes implemented between 2008 and 2011.

These subsidies had several positive effects:

Macroeconomic Impact of the Solar Thermal Electricity Industry in Spain (2011)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 19, 2012

This report - commissioned by Protermosolar and carried out by Deloitte – gives a quantitative and qualitative evaluation of the main macroeconomic variables in Spain derived from technology from 2008 to 2010; and forecasts their future impact. It gives an overview of the different solar thermal technology in Spain and outlines the supporting regulatory framework. This is followed by sections on macroeconomic results, the research, development and innovation effort, and the environmental impact of current technology.

Success Factors in Solar District Heating (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on October 31, 2011

The 'SDHtake-off - Solar District Heating in Europe' project is a EU-funded project (under the European Commission Programme IEE Intelligent Energy Europe)supporting the market rollout of solar district heating in Europe. It started on July 2009 and runs for a period of three years. This document is one of its deliverables, describing the development of SDH capacities in Europe as a result of the existing policies and incentives.

Renewables for Heating and Cooling (2007)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on July 13, 2010

This document, prepared by the International Energy Agency, comes as a follow-up of the 2006 seminar “Renewable heating and cooling – from RD&D to deployment technology and policy” aimed at exploring guidelines and policy initiatives to boost technology development and market deployment for renewable heating and cooling (REHC).
