More than 80 participants could be welcomed at Workshop “IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Research Co-operation“ on 05 June, 2019, in Vienna.
14 speakers presented the results of the ongoing IEA SHC Tasks and successful Austrian projects. Furthermore the possibilities of involving Austrian experts from research and industry into IEA SHC work were discussed. Here you will find the presentations
Information about the Solar Heating and Cooling Technology Collaboration Programme (SHC TCP):
The Solar Heating and Cooling Technology Collaboration Programme (SHC TCP) was established in 1977, one of the first programmes of the International Energy Agency. For over 40 years the SHC TCP’s overarching objective has been co-operative research, development, demonstration and exchange of information regarding solar heating and cooling systems.
The SHC TCP has 20 countries, the European Union and four international institutions as members. More than 400 experts are currently working on seven collaborative tasks. The content of the research projects are solar energy technologies and architectural designs that include active solar thermal heating and cooling, photovoltaic driven heating and cooling, passive solar building design and solar architecture, as well as the consideration of daylighting and thermal comfort.
Through multi-disciplinary international collaborative research, knowledge exchange, and market and policy recommendations, the SHC TCP contributes to increase the deployment rate of solar heating and cooling systems by breaking down the technical and non-technical barriers.
