Solar Energy Desalination Technologyexplains how to obtain clean water from sea water using solar energy. Special methods and types used in solar desalination are introduced, providing new thoughts, concepts, and feasible solutions in the desalination field, along with the thermal and economic efficiency relating to current technology.

Many places in the world are suffering from fresh water shortage. However, those places are often rich with solar resources, sea water, and/or brackish water resources that could dramatically benefit from solar energy as a viable solution for the production of fresh water.

  • Explains the principles of solar thermal energy usage to produce clean water from sea water
  • Introduces and explains new kinds of solar desalination systems, including their technical level and working principle
  • Provides fundamental knowledge on water treatment and solar collection
Professor Hongfei Zheng has been carrying out research in the area of renewable Energy and Energy Efficient Systems in the past twenty years. He has a wide range of experience in solar energy applications including hot water, desalination, air conditioning, solar concentration and daylighting. He began his research interest in solar en...
