Dear Solarthermalworld.org Reader,
With more than 500 registered participants from 78 countries, Solar Heating for Industrial Processes (SHIP) has been the most frequented webinar of this year’s series hosted by the International Solar Energy Society, proving that there is great interest in this solar thermal application among planners, collector manufacturers and research institutions. This second IEA SHC Solar Academy webinar had researchers present reports and useful tools based on the work of Task 49, Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes (2012 to 2015). Besides, international organisations like the IEA or WWF have put their focus on SHIP and published useful studies. The IEA reviewed 21 case studies on renewable systems integrated into industrial processes (see map) and identified eight issues which may attract or deter industrial investors and listed related policy recommendations. The WWF looked at SHIP opportunities in agri-processing and textile production in South Africa.
Have a good read and sunny regards
