Ten Industrial Processes that are Ready for Concentrating Solar Heat (CSH)

Concentrating Solar Heat (CSH) systems are most suitable for processes requiring medium temperature heat (150 ºC to 450 ºC). The table below, adapted from this report by IRENA (2015) shows some of the processes that fall within this temperature range. Source: Adapted from IRENA (2015) Solar Heat from Industrial Processes Technology Brief   Back to…

Jordan’s concentrating solar heat potential

High solar radiation levels and energy-intensive manufacturing industries along with expensive electricity tariffs make Jordan an ideal market for Concentrating Solar Heat (CSH) technology. But the lack of pilot systems and limited financing options have so far deterred potential users.   By Heba Hashem   Solar process heating can significantly help reduce industrial fuel use…

Shorter paybacks, subsidy reforms create a strong business case for Concentrated Solar Heat in industrial processes
By Heba Hashem Concentrated Solar Heat (CSH) systems are yielding big energy savings for industries, cutting their fuel consumption and meeting a substantial amount of their heat demand. Solar-process heat technologies enable temperatures of up to 400°C today, potentially fulfilling almost half of the heat demand in the world’s industrial sector, according to a report…
How large is the demand for heat in industrial processes?
Global heat demand amounts to 44 Exajoules (EJ), or 12200 Terawatt hours (TWh), according to this report published by the Solar Payback Program. To put this into context, bringing one liter of water to 100 ºC requires 4180 Joules. This means that the global heat demand for low and medium temperature applications is enough to…
