    Solar Thermal Shows Highest Energy Yield Per Square Metre

    The annual energy yield per square metre is much higher for solar collectors than for other renewable technologies, as the figure on the left shows. Compared to PV, solar collectors produce, on average, three times as many kilowatt-hours. Compared to biomass or bioethanol, output is in...

    IEA SHC Task 54: Investigating Cost Factors Along the Value Chain

    Researchers have worked intensively for one-and-a-half years across national borders to find ways of reducing the costs of solar thermal systems and making them more attractive to end users. The members of Task 54 of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme, Price Reduction of Solar...

    Europe: The Way to a Shared SHIP Research and Innovation Agenda

    Huge potential but little implementation so far – this is how one could describe the global situation of Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP). Although experts acknowledge that process heat shows the greatest potential of all solar heating and cooling applications, the share of SHIP...

    Eurosun 2016 / Hans Martin Henning: Modelling the energy transition

    With complex computer simulations, Fraunhofer ISE shows how the energy transformation could work. Deputy Director Hans Martin Henning explains what the simulations can do - and why they must not be mistaken as predictions.

    This video was filmed during the Eurosun 2016 in Palma (Mallorca)...
