Investigation of Solar Heating Systems for Industrial Applications in Northern Ethiopia (2011)

This is a presentation made during the 2011 ISES World Congress in Kassel, Germany, by the researchers M. B. Kahsay, R. Cherkos and I.P. da Silva.

A research had been conducted in several industrial facilities in order to assess the impact of solar applications on industrial processes, especially on those requiring extensive use of hot water and heating. Based on the data provided by the solar energy system employed, the researchers could come up with an economic analysis of solar thermal applications for industrial use.

According to their conclusions, the cost of using SWH systems in the factories subject to they study is about 5 US$ cents per kWh and the payback period would be of 6 to 7 years.
