Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes

Project (Task) News

What simulation tools to use for SHIP?
As use of solar heat in manufacturing is still at an early stage, planners and engineers require tools to model and compare differently sized systems and ideas for process integration.

Austria: Optimising of Large-scale Collector Fields
One key aspect of the energy and cost optimisation of large-scale collector fields (called arrays in this news) is collector array hydraulics. Optimal connection is achieved when (1) the costs and length of the connecting pipes is small, (2) the pressure drop over the entire array is low and (3) there is homogeneous mass flow distribution across the entire field.

The Ins & Outs of Integrating Solar Heat into Industrial Processes
October 13, 2015. Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) is an important, upcoming market for solar thermal. To support the growth of this technology the IEA SHC Programme and IEA SolarPACES Programme, working with experts in this field, developed guidelines that describe in detail how to incorporate solar heat into industrial processes.

IEA SHC Task 49: Solar Process Heat Showcase in Montpellier
Industry participation is key for the research work of IEA’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme. Hence, the researchers of Task 49, Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes, used the last meeting in France in mid-September to hold a one-day workshop dedicated to Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes (SHIP) in cooperation with French start-up Energy Service Company Sunti.

IEA SHC: Attractive Solar Process Heat Markets
The most comprehensive online database of solar process heat projects is the website www.ship-plants.info. The database was set up within Task 49 Solar Process Heat for Production and Advanced Applications of the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme. It includes 155 solar process heat projects (as of May 2015) with a total solar thermal capacity of 101 MWth.

Industrial Workshop SHIP, France - 15 September 2015
The SHIP day is intended to industrial, production, energy and sustainability managers within the process industries (agro food, paper, chemistry, textile, leather, metal treatment, etc.), industry associations, production lines and machinery providers as well as energy consultants. This is also a great opportunity to network with the experts from the Task 49, solar technology providers as well as developers with investment capacity. All the competences and success keys for your projects.
