Task 49 - Solar Process Heat for Production and Advanced Applications


Task 49 Highlights 2013
Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Processes
February 2014 - PDF 0.13MB
Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) is currently at the early stages of development, but is considered to have huge potential for solar thermal applications. Currently, 120 operating solar thermal systems for process heat are reported worldwide, with a total capacity of about 88 MWth (125,000 m2). The first applications have been experimental and relatively small scale. In recent years, significantly bigger solar thermal fields have been applied and are currently in the project pipeline. There is great potential for this market and technological developments, as 28% of the overall energy demand in the EU27 countries originates in the industrial sector, and the majority of this is heat of below 250°C.

In several specific industry sectors, such as food, wine and beverages, transport equipment, machinery, textiles, pulp and paper, the share of heat demand at low and medium temperatures (below 250°C) is around 60%. Tapping into this potential would provide a significant solar contribution to industrial energy requirements.

The identification of the requirements of the so called “process heat collectors” that run at higher temperatures will lead to new collector and collector loop developments. To achieve this not only do solar collectors need to be improved, but also production processes need a thorough investigation in order to lower the process temperatures and increase the heat transfer. In several specific industry sectors, such as food, wine and beverages, transport equipment, machinery, textiles, pulp and paper, the share of heat demand at low and medium temperatures (below 250°C) is around 60%. Tapping into this potential would provide a significant solar contribution to industrial energy requirements.
