Excerpts:

This course introduces basic principles of solar water heating which is a well proven technology that directly substitutes renewable energy for conventional energy in water heating. Thereby the course particularly approaches to the in depth study of this new technological facilities. It also sheds lights on the standard procedure to speed the adoption of energy efficient and renewable technologies in the Federal Sector. Further this course entails with extended and considerable potentials for using these technologies at Federal facilities in the Southwestern United States or other parts of the world with high direct-beam solar radiation to set a good example in energy use reduction.

Parabolic-trough solar water heating is a well-proven renewable energy technology with considerable potential for application at Federal facilities. For the United States, parabolic-trough water heating systems are most cost effective in the Southwest where direct solar radiation is high. Jails, hospitals, barracks, and other facilities that consistently use large volumes of hot water are particularly good candidates, as are facilities with central plants for district heating

As with any renewable energy or energy effi- ciency technology requiring significant initial capital investment, the primary condi- tion that will make a parabolic-trough sys- tem economically viable is if it is replacing expensive conventional water heating. In combination with absorption cooling sys- tems, parabolic-trough collectors can also be used for air-conditioning.

Engineer Learning Objectives:

  • Get introduced with the principles and utilization of solar water heating
  • Highlight the proper standards of application of this new technology
  • Uphold the proper condition of application of the well proven technology that directly substitutes renewable energy for conventional energy in water heating.
  • Identify both the scoping and technical sectors regarding this technology
  • Enumerate required state and local government initiatives to reduce energy use
  • Learn to speed the adoption of energy efficient and renewable technologies
  • Identify potentials for using these technologies at Federal facilities in the Southwestern United States or other areas with high direct-beam solar radiation.
  • Identify the appropriate candidates such as jails, hospitals, and barracks that consistently use large volumes of hot water for this technology.
  • Learn about structural changes to existing and altered energy use.
  • Enable to better express and illustrate the idea.
  • Learn the standard procedure to proper utilization of the technological principle to reduce energy use by 30% .
  • Learn to overcome the barriers in achieving goals and advance other efforts to get the Federal government to set a good example in energy use reduction.
