On 4th and 5th October 2017, Task 54 of the International Energy Agency’s Solar Heating and Cooling Programme invites interested solar thermal experts to a public workshop and industry round table in Linz, Austria. The events will focus on technical and economic developments necessary to strengthen solar thermal’s place in the energy system of the future.
While the latest technological findings of Task 54 will be presented in a public workshop on 4th October 2017, the industry round table on the following day offers an exclusive look at cost structures of current systems and present new economic solutions to make solar thermal more attractive for the consumer. These shall be discussed with selected industry guests who are also welcome to bring in their own vision and assess the implementation potential of Task 54’s research.
