We have invented a solar thermal heating system with interseasonal storage, recently patented. I want to display the trees saved and carbon offset on the control display based on temperatures coming down from the solar panels and that flow rate.
The pump station/controller has many sensors and we have added a flow meter. I can read the temperature rise (in from solar vs out to solar), & judge the flow rate (2-25L/Min) accurately. Typically the DeltaT is 15c but can vary wildly based on actual insolation. Flow rate is typically 15L/Min
I am trying to build an algorithm to show CO2e offset. I need to calculate in energy terms (kWt or Mj) the energy injected into the heating system based on temps and flow rate. From that I can calculate the CO2e and trees saved.
