Description: Energy is one of the basic needs for industrial process, economic growth, automation and modernization. Global energy supply predominantly comes from fossil fuel that are the major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions that leads to climate change. Global urgency to hold back emissions rate drives for renewable energy sources. Solar energy is one of the potential resources and environmental friendly nature. A large portion of industrial process heat is low temperature that can easily be supplied by solar energy. Well-engineered integration of solar thermal heating with conventional heating systems is capable to ensure sustainable energy supply in industries.
