Mission & Goals
Solar Heat Europe strives for the growth of solar heat solutions in Europe through different actions, such as advocating for better regulation or encouraging the EU policy makers to shape a fair context for heating and cooling solutions.
With around 50 members in Europe, Solar Heat Europe represents directly or indirectly over 90% of the industry across the value chain.
Solar Heat Europe’s mission is to achieve high priority and acceptance for solar heat as a key element for sustainable heating and cooling in Europe and, with immediate effect, to work for the implementation of all necessary steps to realise the high potential of solar heat.
- Develop and disseminate knowledge
- Develop and promote technical quality
- Use of solar heat
- Communicate to policy makers
- Promote an open market
To develop, deepen and disseminate the knowledge concerning the use of solar thermal energy, from scientific, technological, economic, sociological, legal and political perspectives, as well as in any other aspect having a relevance at European level
To develop and promote the technical quality of the European solar thermal industry
To support any initiative at national and international level aiming at the promotion of the use of solar thermal energy and of other forms of renewable energy
To communicate to policy makers the opportunities and concerns regarding the development of solar thermal energy in Europe
To actively promote the abolition of any technical or trade barriers which hamper the development of an open solar thermal market at European level
Ensure a fair representation of renewable and efficient technologies for Heating and Cooling, and more specifically of Solar Heat solutions, in the European debate.
Provide the best services and advice to our members in a timely manner on questions related to European Energy Legislation, standardisation, markets or other relevant matters.
Facilitate awareness about the European Solar Heat market by relevant stakeholders, providing adequate information on the market development as well as a good understanding of the potential evolution of the market.
