Model 14: Solar Thermal Model
Humanity’s energy consumption is growing exponentially, and the use of fossil fuel for energy generation is creating unsustainable problems such as pollution and climate change. So we must rely on renewable energies for future energy supply. Electrification of the society is on the way, it means that thermal energy will feed most of our energy needs (heating & cooling, digitalisation, mobility, and others).
There is a way of creating hot water from the sun thanks to the SOLAR THERMAL effect. We can create and store hot water with the SOLAR THERMAL systems, and so the energy of this hot water can be interchanged to domestic hot water, household heating systems, pool warming, or even for coolings system using absortion machines.
