  3. 3. Retrofitted Solar Domestic Hot Water System for Single-Family Electrically-Heated Houses: Development and testing

    Author : Ricardo Bernardo; Institutionen för arkitektur och byggd miljö; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Solar domestic hot water; retrofitting; single family electrically heated houses; high solar fraction; photovoltaic thermal concentrating hybrids; PVT; parabolic reflectors; CPC thermal collector.;

    Abstract : In Sweden, there are roughly half a million single family houses that use electric heating for both domestic hot water production and space heating. Since electricity is the most expensive energy source in Sweden, it is interesting to install a high solar fraction solar thermal system to reduce the energy use in these houses. READ MORE
