Asoluna provides solar energy systems with both solar thermal and photovoltaic panels for industries, farms and greenhouses, camping and swimming resorts, public buildings, and other large installations.
When the Tingvalla sports arena was built a solar energy solution was installed to provide a combination of hot water, heating, and electricity. The installation included 170 m 2 of solar collectors (ST) rated 120 kW, and 172 m 2 of photovoltaic cells (PV) rated 20 kW.
In a greenhouse the solar collector absorbers will collect heat during the day and heat up the greenhouses during the night. The size of a greenhouse installation is typically 3,000-20,000 m 2 .
Advanced technology for solar thermal energy was used in the Olympic Village for sailing in Qingdao in China during the Olympic Games 2008. The installation is producing both heating, hot water and cooling for the sports centre as well as heating of the pool system. The excess capacity is stored and utilized in a district heat distribution system. The advanced design has received international and domestic publicity and attention.
