Medium Temperature Solar Collectors Database

Within the work package 11 “Line-focusing STE technologies” of the project STAGE-STE a solar collectors’ database has been created. This database currently contains information of about 75 different models of solar collector and is configured to be updated online.

This work is being done in the framework of the European project STAGE-STE. The gathered information is also used inside the Task 49 of the International Energy Agency (IEA). The Task 49 is the working group for Solar Heat Integration in Industrial Process (SHIP) of the Solar Heating and Cooling program (SHC) by the IEA (http://task49.iea-shc.org/).

Possible uses of the collectors included in the database are mainly solar process heat but also solar cooling, desalination, electricity generation using Organic Rankine cycle (ORC), pumping irrigation water, water heating for high consumptions, etc.

Existing collectors are based on different technologies (parabolic-trough collectors, linear Fresnel collectors, parabolic dishes, ultra-high vacuum flat plate collectors, fixed mirror solar concentrator, etc...), different designs, concepts, sizes and materials, etc. This database is intended to be a reference in the medium temperature solar thermal collectors market.
