Commissioned by the SCI Network, this report provides an overview of the different technologies for implementing solar heating and cooling systems in buildings.
This involves a survey of different collector types, a detailed comparison of different chiller types, and an assessment of the advantages and disadvantage of each system. The report also makes recommendations to prepare for implementation of solar heating and cooling system.
These include reducing the cooling load, considering solar collector areas in early design stages, comparing the environmental impact, and finding expert input to calculate costs.
