Introduction to Renewable Energy Options from METAC
Who We Are:MidlandEnergyTraining &AssessmentCentre METAC Training
What We do:• We provide Training and Assessment for:• Oil• Gas• Solar hot Water• Unvented Cylinder installation and service• Solar PV• Heat Pump (Geothermal and air to water)• Biomass• Wind• Air tightness• Passive House
How to Conserve Energy:• Insulation• Air Tightness• Energy efficient heating products• Zoned heating systems• Add or change over to renewable energy heating products
Thermal Insulation• Where to install it and how?• Preventing air circulation• Over heating attic spaces without consideration for storage water
Air Tightness• Draughts under window sills• Draughty doors and windows• Installation of breathable membranes
Active Renewable Energy Systems Thermal collector system - flat panels, vacuum tubes, air tubes Geothermal systems - heatpump systems (air, ground water, water) Photovoltaic systems - grid systems, stand alone - solarlights Biomass systems „pellets“ - domestic houses - public buildings / schools etc.
Active Renewable Energy Systems Veg. oil - combustion engines - heat burners Wind energy - domestic house - wind farms, grid systems Fuel cells - mobile systems - stationary systems Biomass - Commercial use - pellets - chip boilers - gasification boilers
Active Renewable Energy Systems Wave and tide energy - generators Energy Crops - veg. oil - Energy vegetables - strew, maize etc.
Thermal Collector SystemDomestic water systems- family houses- hotels- business- sports buildings to provide up to 70 % of heateddomestic water per annum with solarcollectorsHeating systems- family houses- hotels- business buildings to provide up to 30 % of heatingrequirements with solar collectors
Thermal Collector System Heat Process- business buildings- chemical industry- hotels- sports buildings- generators Heat Generator - generators
