This Guide introduces some basic PV concepts, identifies the PV module size and shape, the manufacturing technology, examines the environmental issues and the energy production, analyzes the installation of PVs in buildings and the inter-related issues of costs and sizing and provides a case study of a preliminary design of a building-integrated PV system.
The decision support tool is designed to identify the most suitable geographical regions for deployment of solar water pumps in India. The tool primarily targets the policy makers and the private sector to have an overview of the most suitable areas for deployment.
This report explores economically attractive approaches – from both the farmers’ as well as the government’s perspectives – to promote the adoption of solar pumps, and to assess the sensitivity of economic outcomes to variations in conditions across the country.
This report aims at producing all the necessary elements to capture the full picture of the European markets for the industry, decision makers, investors and all professionals interested in solar heat markets.
This technical study provides an overview on the status on ways of measuring, monitoring and controlling solar thermal in smaller systems, with a clear focus on current methods. It looks into the state-of-the-art for solar thermal, including some components such as sensors, controllers and connectivity. Also, provides possible service offerings based on the remote monitoring, controlling of solar heating systems.
The RE Guideline aims to document the existing permits and steps involved in the implementation of small PV projects in Malaysia, with capacity smaller than 72 kWp, in an easy-to-use and concise format. The Guideline provides an overview of the various steps involved and approvals required from concerned departments or authorities. The publications guide project developers to obtain a feed-in tariff as provided by the Malaysian Renewable Energy Act 2011.
The RE Guideline aims to document the existing permits and steps involved in the implementation of large PV projects in Malaysia, with capacity greater than 72 kWp, in an easy-to-use and concise format. The Guideline provides an overview of the various steps involved and approvals required from concerned departments or authorities. The publications guide project developers to obtain a feed-in tariff as provided by the Malaysian Renewable Energy Act 2011.
The scope of the policy recommendation paper addresses challenges faced by other players e.g. utility, project developer, investor, financing institution, etc. in addition to the administration and government. This will help in identifying challenges faced by other players in the development of RE and find potential solutions for the overall development of the RE market in ASEAN.
This study provides current situation and opportunity analysis and offers recommendations on regional renewable energy (RE) cooperation, including solar PV.
The ASEAN Renewable Energy Policies is part of ACE's effort to fulfill its function as a regional energy centre of excellence that continues to initiate a coherent, coordinated, focused and robust energy policy agenda and strategy for ASEAN. We hope that this publication could provide stakeholders with useful information on the current situation of RE policies development in ASEAN, to enhance cooperation towards energy security in the region.
This report provides an overall RE use from 2000 to 2017, examines Ireland’s progress towards 2020 RE targets with a comparison with the other EU member states, presents data on overall RE use split by electricity, heat, and transport and also by energy source. Also, shows how the use of RE displaces the use of fossil fuels.
This report examines in detail the global solar photovoltaic (PV) value chain, Ireland’s strengths within it and opportunities for Irish research and industry to capture value and new business from a growing international solar PV market out to 2030.
This roadmap pathway is focusing on the standardized and cost optimal solutions to integrate solar thermal technology in all industrial processes, by developing collector structures adapted to industrial buildings, improved large-scale solar collector arrays, and new planning and design tools.
This publication tries to provide guidelines for policy and framework conditions related to solar heating and cooling, in particular solar water heating. It aims at providing a quick overview of the main issues to be considered for setting the right framework for the promotion of the solar thermal technology. Therefore, it outlines key recommendations and guidelines for the implementation of a programme for the promotion of solar water heating.
This guide aims at explaining the relevance of quality assurance for a sustainable market development, besides providing an overview of quality assurance measures applied to solar thermal products and installations around the world. It also indicates some possible steps in order to set up a quality assurance system in a country.
This report contains a set of planning policy and development guidance recommendations for utility scale solar photovoltaic schemes in Ireland. These recommendations will inform any future planning and development for utility scale ground mounted solar PV installations.
This guide aims at promoting solar water heating (SWH) systems to architects and builders from developing countries and help them consider integrating SWH applications in their designs. Intending to be a useful handbook, this “Quick Guide” provides a compact overview of the technology and its main characteristics; as well as the main requirements to be considered for its application in different types of projects and in different geographical locations.
