Mechanical Equipment & Control Strategies for a Chilled water and a Hot water system (2008)

Submitted by Hans Craen on April 19, 2009

This report from 2008 falls within the framework of the Internal Energy Agency’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme.

The objective of this report is to undertake pre-normative research to develop a comprehensive and integrated suite of building energy analysis tool tests involving analytical, comparative, and empirical methods.

These methods will provide for quality assurance of software some of which will be enacted in specific standards to be used for certifying software used for showing compliance to building energy standards.

Solar Cooling: Overview and Recommendations (2009)

Submitted by Hans Craen on April 13, 2009

This Technical Brochure, published in 2009, presents the final results of the SOLCO project. This project promotes, among other objectives, the widespread use of solar technologies and energy savings due to solar cooling applications in the building sector. The SOLCO project focuses on solar cooling technology across southern European islands.

May in Europe: Four Solar Thermal Events Within One Month Alone

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on April 3, 2009

There are a lot of places in Europe during the month of May where you can listen to highly regarded solar thermal speakers. Four solar thermal conferences will then take place in three different countries: Germany, Italy and Poland.

Solar thermal symposium

Barriers to Technology Diffusion: the Case of Solar Thermal Technologies (2006)

Submitted by Hans Craen on March 27, 2009

This joint paper from the OECD and IEA (October 2006) looks into the different barriers that exist which prevent solar thermal technologies to deliver its real potential. Next to listing the barriers, the document also looks into means to overcome these, the existing technologies & markets and identifies best practices which can be used by policy makers in both industrialised and developing countries.

Three barriers to diffusion are analysed in more detail:

(1) Technical barriers,

(2) Economic barriers and

Solar cooling: a new Field for Simulations

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 24, 2009

Solar cooling is a promising new field of application for solar thermal technology. A new version of the simulation software Polysun will be published in April. It will not only be able to design solar thermal systems but also solar powered cooling plants that work with compression coolers or fan coils. A version that also contains a simulation model for absorption chillers is scheduled for the summer months. Polysun is offered in Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish.
