Serbia: Technology Transfer to Make Sun Rise in Western Balkans

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on December 11, 2012

If there is a region in Europe across which conditions for solar thermal use are favourable but the power of the sun has not been much utilised, it´s surely South-East Europe. The insolation from Croatia in the west to Bulgaria in the east, from Romania in the north to Albania in the south is stronger than in most other parts of the “old continent”, but solar thermal systems on roofs and facades of houses are rare. To determine the barriers which keep people from using solar energy in the building sector and to find ways to overcome them was the aim of a regional workshop on “Promoting Technology Transfer Utilising Solar Energy in the Western Balkan Region” on 6 and 7 November 2012 in Belgrade, Serbia. Organising the event was the Budapest-based Regional Environment Center for Central and Eastern Europe (REC). A list of the participants and presentations can be found online.
