Title: Analysis of collectors for process heat applications

Abstract

The economic viability of solar energy for industrial process heat applications depends directly on the collector array performance and cost. Various distributed solar collectors are evaluated in terms of solar availability, attainable performance, and projected costs. Collectors are rank ordered in their projected cost effectiveness for future industrial process heat applications.
