Page 494 - Program Solicitation for Research on Subsystems and Systems for the Application of Solar Energy to the Heating and Cooling of Buildings was given wide distribution in FY 1974 and nearly 500 formal proposals for innovative research were received and evaluated by the Foundation . After careful screening of...
Page 27 - The Panel was charged with assessing the potential of solar energy as a national energy resource and the state of the technology in the various solar energy application areas, and with recommending necessary research and development programs to develop the potential in those areas considered important. The scope of the Panel's activities was defined to include all applications of direct solar energy, as well as power...

It should be pointed out again that all the applications mentioned so far did not require concentration of solar energy, and therefore could utilize the diffuse portion of solar energy and even work on cloudy days.

Page 226 - Figure 41 shows a solar pump model, in this case, made out of glass so that its operation can be observed. It only has two check valves and otherwise, no moving parts. A boiler is connected by a straight and a U-shaped tube to a chamber with check valves at the inlet and outlet. The liquid in the boiler is vaporized, pushing liquid out of the system, and when the vapor reaches the bottom of the U -tube, it suddenly streams into the other chamber filled with cold liquid, where the steam rapidly condenses.
