This document produced, in 2009, by IDEA (Instituto para la DiversificaciÃ³n y Ahorro de la EnergÃa) in collaboration with CENSOLAR (Spanish Solar Energy Training Centre), provides an overview of the minimum technical conditions to be met by solar thermal water heating systems, covering also durability, reliability and security requirements.
The purpose is to establish technical conditions to be considered during the call for subsidies regarding solar thermal installations, included in the Spanish Renewable Energy Plan for 2005-2010.
The document covers details such as the design of the systems, the different configurations and requirements. In addition, there is also a section related to overheating, protection against frost and other precautionary measures to take into account, in order to assure the good functioning of solar thermal systems.
