The second Solar Academy Webinar on Solar Heating for Industrial Processes was held July 6, 2017. When IEA SHC Task 49 on Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes was launched 2012, there were approximately 120 SHIP systems generating up to 88 MWth.  Over the last years, this figure has tripled to more than 500 SHIP systems generating a minimum of 291 MWth.

This technology is a growing market, but will require the integration concepts to be standardized and collector field costs to be cut. The researchers of SHC Task 49 focused on these and other challenges, and the webinar speakers highlighted some of the key findings as well as investment opportunities:

  • Christoph Brunner -- Worldwide perspective of SHIP from planning to realization
  • Pedro Horta -- Available technologies, design procedures and upcoming technological developments
  • Bärbel Epp -- Investment opportunities in SHIP
