Introduction to Solar Thermal Energy

Introduction to Solar Thermal Energy

In this video on decarbonising heat, Christophe introduces the staggering potential of solar energy and the progress in solar panel technology. He also covers the problems of distribution, the enormous task of transitioning to renewable energy cost effectively and the means by which to achieve this. Finally, he discusses about the next 30 years of solar heat.
Overview

It is becoming increasingly evident that climate change is a huge threat to society and also represents a considerable investment risk to businesses. The need to move towards cleaner sources of power is of the essence and although this has been happening with electricity, the generation of clean heat has lagged behind. Amongst all renewable power sources, the sun provides us with the greatest opportunity but is yet to be maximised. The opportunity to use solar thermal technology to decarbonise heat (generate clean heat) will be a major milestone in mitigating climate change. In this video we will introduce solar thermal technology and how it could be used to deliver clean heat.

Key learning objectives:

  • Understand what is solar thermal technology and why it is important

  • Identify the key challenges in decarbonising heat

  • Understand the different potential solutions to deliver clean heat

  • Understand the predicted development of the solar thermal industry as per the IEA’s outlook
