Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 7, 2015

This document presents a roadmap and strategy for developing the solar thermal market in Colorado and positioning the state as a leader in the research and development of solar thermal hot water heating technologies. It was developed by the Solar Thermal Alliance of Colorado.

According to the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, solar thermal technologies perform better than any other state in the nation.

India: First Stakeholder Workshop for Solar Thermal Roadmap

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on May 17, 2014
Greentech RoadmapWhereas India shows enormous demand for thermal energy in the industry and for cooking, solar thermal has so far only covered 0.2 % of the total heating and cooling need. Therefore it is urgent to scale up the use of decentralised solar thermal technologies. Supported by the Shakti Foundation, consultancy Greentech Knowledge Solutions (GKSPL), located in New Delhi, will prepare a roadmap for scaling up deployment of decentralised solar thermal technologies in India. With plans to publish the roadmap by October 2014, GKSPL organised the first stakeholder workshop in Pune at the end of April, gathering around 40 experts mainly from the solar thermal manufacturing business.

 SHC Logo ” From 9 to 11 July 2012, San Francisco will host the International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry – the SHC 2012. The science conference is organised by the International Energy Agency's Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) in cooperation with German PSE AG. Taking place in the same week as the Intersolar North America, it will provide a platform to discuss the latest advancements in solar heating and cooling technologies. Intersolar visitors may use their conference ticket to attend the last SHC conference day. The final podium discussion will be a joint session of both events.

Paolo Frankl Speaks About IEA's 2012 Solar Heating and Cooling Roadmap

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on March 12, 2012

This is an interview with Paolo Frankl from IEA made during the ESTEC 2011 conference in Marseille. Paolo explains that IEA is paying more attention to heating and its contribution to consumption. The IEA will release by spring 2012 a solar heating and cooling roadmap. Solar energy in the heating sector is expected to increase significantly. The main drivers to this increase are the environmental concerns (CO2 reductions), but also energy security.
