Decarbonization Avenue : Low & medium temperature solar thermal


Lack of awareness of solar thermal applications

Commercial & industrial customers in many regions worldwide are still unaware of the benefits of solar thermal based water heating and drying.

This is especially the case with industrial customers. Industry sectors such as food, diry, chemicals, automotive etc., can use solar thermal for at least preheating for their process heating or drying applications, but this is not well known. Most consider solar thermal to be qualified only for residential water heating, which is not the case.
