Prince Charles Hospital Solar Energy Feasibility Study

This report was prepared for the Prince Charles Hospital in Australia. The whole report is a site appraisal assessment for outfitting the hospital with solar water heating. Within the appraisal, it is estimated that a well designed solar thermal system can contribute up to 70 percent of the annual energy needs required for the production of domestic hot water. They have suggestions for collector positioning and orientation for best results, along with roofing measurements. It also provides system sizing information for Prince Charles Hospital and benefit analysis and recommendations for which system would be best suited for the Hospital. This Australian 12-page report on the feasibility of large 8 m2 solar hot water panels found that they are not economically feasible due to low electricity rates.
