This presentation was created by Jacques Roeth of the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). It explains NYSERDA’s view of how best to further and advance the solar thermal industry and market in the US.
The presentation begins by looking at the history of the US solar thermal industry and how the domestic market currently compares to the rest of the world. NYSERDA suggests 5 steps to promoting adoption of solar thermal technologies among the public: Knowledge, Persuasion, Decision, Implementation, Confirmation. Other important steps that should be taken, as suggested by the presentation, and widespread education campaigns streamlining installation regulations and procedures.
