Solar energy three technologies one source

Solar Energy:Three Technologies – One Source

  • Solar Electricity

  • Solar Thermal

  • Passive Solar


Solar power solar heat or solar energy

Solar Power, Solar Heat or Solar Energy?

  • Green heat and green power are both important

  • Load displacement is just as important as new generation

  • All solar technologies are part of the solution

Benefits of the cansia s 25 by 25 program

Benefits of the CanSIA’s “25 by 25” Program

  • A minimum of 25 million megawatt-hoursper year of renewable solar electrical andthermal energy.

  • $30 to $40 billion of economic activity forCanadians.

  • 60,000 – 70,000 high quality jobs in thesolar industry.

  • 120,000 – 210,000 other jobs as a directresult of solar activities.

  • 15 –30 million tonnes of greenhouse gasemission reductions annually.

Socioeconomic potential

Socioeconomic Potential

  • Barriers

  • Policies

  • Strategies


Socioeconomic potential barriers for customers

Socioeconomic Potential:Barriers for Customers

  • Bad economic performance: high investment costs are the most visible barrier to PV

  • There is a lack of proper financing opportunities

  • Architectural design and simple standardised systems are not available

  • Uncertainty on the technical performance

  • Lack of information on the benefits of PV

Source: IEA-PVPS T7-06:2002


Socioeconomic potential barriers for society

Socioeconomic Potential:Barriers for Society

  • Environmental benefits are not rewarded

  • Lack of awareness with respect to scarce fossil and nuclear resources

  • Customers willingness to pay is not exhausted

  • Low social acceptance

  • Distortions in public education

Source: IEA-PVPS T7-06:2002


Socioeconomic potential barriers for solar industries

Socioeconomic Potential:Barriers for Solar Industries

  • The PV suppliers do not know the potential market and they do not know how to reach the market

  • There is lack of proper marketing strategies and a lack of adequate infrastructure for successfully marketing PV systems

  • Communication problems between different actors in the market (e.g. between architects, building companies and PV retailers) do still widely exist

Source: IEA-PVPS T7-06:2002


Socioeconomic potential policies

Socioeconomic Potential:Policies

  • Net Metering

  • Feed-in Tariffs (Energy-Based Production Incentives)

  • Long Term Financing

  • Purchase/Installation Incentives


Socioeconomic potential costs

Socioeconomic Potential : Costs

  • Solar as a distributed energy source is unique

  • Costs of Central Power Plants are amortized over 20-40 years

  • Other nations level the playing field by offering long term loans with interest rate subsidies

  • (In the US – over 80 solar loan programs in place)


Socioeconomic potential marketing strategies

Socioeconomic Potential: Marketing Strategies

CanSIA’s Standard Offers Contract for PV ProgramObjectives

  • To demonstrate government support for solar at a meaningful level (it will bring new private investment into the solar industry).

  • To help bridge the inequality of government support for other energy sources with its support for solar.

  • To stimulate the market for “grid-connected” PV in a manner that allows the industry to grow sustainably.
