De thermal solar energy It consists of using & # 39; the energy of & # 39; a mind to get science for a rotary, mostly water or air.
One of its most widespread applications worldwide They are whole water tanks, it can control the water safely and efficiently, without the use of gas or electricity.
Another application of solar thermal energy is the possibility of gEnergy Electric Energy Through Steam Production. So, and with the aim of knowing the range of products and services that this technology has in the country, the Renewable Energy Center performed the second edition of the National Solar Thermal Census and performed first.
"On this occasion, we collected data for 2017, with a total of 225 companies registered (68% more than in 2015, the year in which we assumed the first census). One of & # 39; results you & # 39; "We were told that 35,141 sq.m. of heat-exchanging hot-water international hot water (ACP) equipment – next to 9,318m² of non-lid plastic collectors, mostly used for swimming pools -" explained Martín Saber, of the Center for Renewable Energies or INTI.
As for the new features, it will be investigated in 2017 7018 (they may be one or more solar thermal devices). Suggest this data an increase of 17.9 percent in comparison with 2015.
An energy heating
Solar-powered energy means an ecological alternative to energy consumption and production: Only with the new ACS 2017 facility, 5520 tonnes have been sold in carbon dioxide (TCO2) emissions, as made by a thousand cars a year.
On the other hand, the expansion of solar thermal energy is also represented by an economic spear: specifically set up in 2017 a capacity reduction such as more than four million cubic meters of natural gas.
About the geographical distribution of & # 39; actors that make up the sector are 79% of & # 39; The provinces register activities in a thermal zone. Agents registered from Cordoba (24.4%), Buenos Aires (23.6%), Buenos Aires (12%), Santa Fe (11.6%), San Juan (5.3%), Entre Ríos (4% ), San Luis (3.6%), Mendoza (3.1%), Neuquén (2.2%), Chaco (1.3%), Chubut (1.3%) Catamarca (0%), 90% ), Formosa (0.9%), Jujuy (0.9%), La Pampa (0.9%), Rio Negro (0.9%), Salta (0.9%), Tucuman (0.9%), Missions (0.4% ).
About the new actors, 45 companies began their activity in the solar thermal sector of 2017, that is, 20% of the total number of registered businesses. The activity you grew most was installed: It increased by 61% in relation to installation companies that were registered in 2015.
From the powerful data, it appears that the national industry was made 9,163 m² factory in this period (2017). Also, the productive capacity would be taken into account that three companies are being made, so that the potential of local industry responds to a larger-scale projection.
As for the work data, the sector registered a total of 808 direct jobs. Regarding the size of one of the companies, it must be determined that there is a property of micro-businesses – up to 9 employees – (86.2%), followed by small businesses – from 10 to 49 employees – (10 , 2%), a small percentage of medium-sized businesses – from 50 to 200 employees (3.1%) and only 0.4% of large companies – more than 200 employees -.
"In the next free time, we will publish the full report of the survey, with the list of companies registered and all statistical information collected," said Saber.
The National Solar-Thermal Census is a work of the INTI-Renewable Energy Center, the technological arm of the state, which is not aimed at the individual of & # 39; an Energy Matrix through the development of energy from sustainable sources, with a national offering of comprehensive types and services.
