  3. 3. Solar Thermal Collectors at High Latitudes Design and performance of non-tracking concentrators

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Monika Adsten; Manuel Collares-Pereira; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Materials science; Solar thermal collectors; concentrators; CPC; high latitudes; Materialvetenskap; Solfångare; koncentratorer; höga latituder; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Teknisk materialvetenskap; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Solar thermal collectors at high latitudes have been studied, with emphasis on concentrating collectors. A novel design of concentrating collector, the Maximum Reflector Collector (MaReCo), especially designed for high latitudes, has been investigated optically and thermally. READ MORE

  4. 4. Planning for Solar Buildings in Urban Environments

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Jouri Kanters; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; architecture; design tool; design process; solar energy; urban planning; photovoltaics; solar thermal; building integration; density; net zero energy buildings; interviews; parametric studies; action research;

    Abstract : Energy use in buildings accounts for a significant proportion of the total energy use in many countries. While past and current buildings have solely been energy consumers, future buildings will, besides using less energy, also need to produce (part of ) the required energy on site with renewables.

  5. 5. Molecular Solar Thermal Energy Storage System: Evaluation of Different Candidates

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Zhihang Wang; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Energy storage and release; Vinylheptafulvene; Catalyst; Quadricyclane; Solar Energy; Thermal dynamics; Molecular switches; Azobenzene; Norbornadiene; Energy conversion; Dihydroazulene;

    Abstract : The development of solar energy can potentially meet the growing requirements for a global energy system beyond fossil fuels, however necessitates new scalable technologies for solar energy storage. One approach is the development of energy storage systems based on molecular photoswitches, so-called molecular solar thermal energy storage (MOST). READ MORE
