Brussels, 17 November 2016 – The Solar Certification Fund (SCF) launches today its 8th call for proposals to continue to provide regular and reliable support for (1) developing better and new Solar Thermal certification and standardisation processes, (2) ensuring quality assurance for tomorrow’s solar thermal technology.
“The Solar Keymark is a voluntary third-party certification mark for solar thermal products to help consumers to choose wisely products which conform to the relevant European standards. It is the main quality label for solar thermal products and is widely spread across the European market and beyond” mentioned Jaime Fernandez, Chairman of the Solar Keymark Network. “As such, it is important that SKN reinvests in quality assurance, standardisation and certification processes by means of the projects supported by the Solar Certification Fund”, he added.
This new call has an indicative budget of 120 000 Euros and the final allocation will depend on the relevance and quality of the proposals submitted.
