Review of active solar technologies. Final report

Technical Report:

Abstract

The UK Department of Energy (through the Energy Technology Support Unit) commissioned this Review as part of its general review of renewable energy technologies. It was carried out in the period from April 1991 to March 1992, and its main aim may be summarised as follows: to examined the technological and market developments which have taken place in the UK and overseas since the last UK review of active solar technologies in the early 1980s; to consider how the active solar technologies and markets are likely to develop in future in the UK, bearing in mind any lessons which may be learned from similar developments overseas; to establish the accessible potential contribution which active solar systems might make to saving fossil fuels and reducing CO{sub 2} emissions in the UK; identify the barriers to UK active solar market growth and to suggest what might be done to overcome these barriers. The main focus of the review is the most well established active solar technology in the UK and overseas which is water heating in dwellings and swimming pools. (author).
