On the Sustainable Development of Solar Thermal Obligations in Buildings in the Framework of the Portuguese Case (2008)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on September 12, 2011

This paper was presented by a group of researchers of the INETI (National Institute of Engineering, Technology and Innovation), during the EUROSUN Conference in Lisbon, Portugal, in 2008.

The paper explains the steps given to prepare a solar thermal obligation (STO) in the country. It passes in review the existing legislation and incentives for the development of solar thermal in Portugal. A regulation for thermal performance of buildings was created in 2006 to comply with the European Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings (2002/91/CE).
