To promote the use of solar energy, the European Commission started the “Soltherm Europe Initiative“ in 2002. The project is an initiative to enhance the rapid market growth of thermal solar plants in Europe.
The Network gathers 36 expert organisations throughout the Europe (12 EU countries, 9 Candidate countries and Israel), all having a mandate to promote innovative, energy-efficient energy technologies with a focus on building-related technologies.
Promise – production with solar energy. Documentation of examples of solar thermal applications in the industry, identification of production processes and industry sectors, which need low temperature heat, evaluation of the potential for solar thermal systems to generate low temperature heat in the industry, case studies for industry sectors and processes with large, medium term implementing potential.
Passive cooling concepts for office and administration buildings with air or water operated underground heat exchanger. Comparison between passive cooling concepts and conventional air conditioning systems.
