Skip’s Tips – Advanced Solar Thermal Workshop

Today’s workshop will focus on large system design.  These systems can be for multifamily buildings, schools, laundromats, or military facilities for example.  We will discuss multiple large system applications and will address how to evaluate a site in terms of loads, distribution and solar access, the economies of scale and tax benefits, how to select components (collectors, storage, heat exchangers, pumps, etc.), and how to simulate these systems using  programs like FChart and TRNSYS.

Guest speakers to be announced.

This installment of Skip’s Tips is for an advance audience level.

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