India: First Training Programme for Plumbers of ICPCI

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 13, 2011

 Training Programme for Plumbers of ICPCI” It turned out that the fast-growing market for solar water heating systems in India required more installers who could fulfil its particular requirements than had been available. Bearing this in mind, the International Copper Promotion Council of India (ICPCI) organised its first training programme for installers in Pune in the last week of March 2011. The 24 trainees expressed their satisfaction with the 6-day course and offered manufacturers their first installations just a few weeks later.

Germany: International Training Seminar Solar Process Heat in Munich

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 6, 2011

 Solar Process Heat” While solar heat for domestic and service applications shows increasing market shares across Europe, solar process heat seems still very much in its infancy. In principle, the potential is enormous: About 30% of the total industrial heat demand requires temperature levels below 100°C, which can be met by commercially available solar thermal collectors. The international training seminar Solar Process Heat, which takes place as an official side event of the Intersolar Europe in Munich on 9 June 2011, will offer information and know-how on solar thermal system design for solar process heat installations.

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on March 10, 2011

 Thermosiphon systems in Algeria” The Algerian solar water heating programme ALSOL went into its first pilot phase. 400 residential systems with a 200 litre storage tank have been subsidised at around 45 % of the investment costs, capped at Algerian Dinar (DZD) 110,000. The licenses for installing the 400 subsidised systems were distributed among 15 solar thermal system suppliers in January. Largely, those thermosiphon systems consist of 1 collector, as can be seen on the photo on the left.
