IEA SHC Programme on growth path 

Using information from 68 countries, Solar Heat Worldwide is a rich source of national market data while also highlighting each year’s aggregated figures to indicate global trends. Published annually by the IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme, the report has become a well-trusted source of solar thermal data and a go-to reference for international organizations such as REN21 and IRENA.

In addition, the report contains multiple important chapters on the successful use of solar heat by different customer groups. The steadily growing, global PV-Thermal market is a special feature of this year’s report.

IEA SHC is in a phase of strong expansion both in terms of widening the research topics and increasing regional coverage. The programme has already welcomed the sixth UNIDO Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centres (GN-SEC) as a sponsor member. Tomas Olejniczak, the newly elected IEA SHC Chair, will support researchers from the GN-SEC community in becoming actively involved in the various research projects, as they are important multipliers in new emerging markets that will invest in energy infrastructure and projects in the next decade.
