Although the technology of solar thermal collectors for medium temperature applications is not new, few collectors and commercial installations were available worldwide. Presently the sector is growing rapidly, new technologies have been developed and real installations using these technologies are already being built all around the world for different applications, especially for the generation of heat required by industrial applications. Considering the increasing number of available products and the importance of disseminating this information among system designers and end-users, a database of the available solar collectors for medium temperature applications is under development. The information has been gathered from the different collector manufacturers and suppliers and the available technical information published on the different collector models. Aiming a thorough insight into these new commercially available solutions, the database includes the most relevant technical ...
