Worldwide: Final Draft of New Collector Standard

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 23, 2013

The draft of the EN ISO 9806 was submitted to the CEN/TC 312 in January 2013. This means that all technical debates are concluded and only minor editorial changes may still find their way into the latest version. The formal voting will take place in June and August 2013, and the new standard is said to be published between February and May 2014. The EN ISO 9806 replaces the EN 12975-2 and the ISO 9806-1, -2 and -3. It will be the first almost globally valid standard for solar thermal collectors, as it is both an EN and an ISO standard.

EN ISO 9806: Upcoming Global Collector Standard

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 26, 2012

 Presentation U. Fritsche In February, Ulrich Fritzsche took the collector manufacturers that were gathered at the SMEThermal 2012 conference on a special tour around the globe. His presentation in Berlin, Germany, listed the collector standards and quality guidelines across the world’s key solar thermal markets: Australia, Brazil, China, India, Turkey and the USA (see the attached presentation). All in all, the Director of the Technical Competence Center Solar Thermal at TÜV Rheinland shed light on six different standards and their requirements to test systems locally. The differences between each testing procedure are one of the reasons why global trade is rather expensive for collector manufacturers.
