European renewable heating group identifies huge opportunities in solar heating

The “Strategic Research Priorities” document looks at promising research topics and has been prepared with the help of contributions from experts in the research, industry and public sectors. It discusses the opportunities for innovation in the solar heating and cooling sector up to 2050 as well as the need for a significant increase in R&D activities and budgets to exploit it. The document was actually developed by RHC-Platform’s Solar Thermal Technology Panel (ESTTP) and covers solar technologies for nearly-zero energy residential buildings, public and commercial buildings, district heating systems, industrial applications and solar assisted cooling systems. According to the Common Vision of RHC-Platform, renewable energy technologies could meet over 25 percent of the heat demand in the European Union and this could increase to 100 percent before 2040. Solar heating and ...
