Task 48
SHC Task 48

QA & Support Measures for Solar Cooling

Overview

The main objective of this Task is to assist a strong and sustainable market development of solar cooling systems. It is focusing on systems including any solar thermal cooling technology (no power limitation or solar collector field area) which can be used in heating mode.
 
The proposed project is intended therefore to create a logical follow up of the IEA SHC work already carried out by trying to find solutions to make the solar thermally driven heating and cooling systems at the same time efficient, reliable and cost competitive.
