Skip’s Tips – Advanced Solar Thermal Workshop

This workshop will focus on combination systems.  We’ll look at combined water heating and space heating applications which can be simple or very complex. We will discuss system design factors including collector and storage sizing and overheat prevention.  We’ll examine results from monitoring and evaluation of combisystems in Europe and discuss if they are appropriate for the U.S. and San Diego.

Guest speakers will be engineer Hal Brody and architect John Gillies, who will describe their (existing and planned) combisystems.

This Skip’s Tips is for general and advanced audience levels.

PLEASE NOTE:  This event will be held at the Energy Innovation Center.
