Abstract

demonstration sur la consommation des piscines en France s'eleve a 400 000 tep, se repartissant entre les piscines de plein-air (100 000 tep) et les piscines couvertes (300 000 tep). Une telle situation a conduit les ma8Itres d'ouvrage et les pouvoirs publics a etudier les differentes technologies initiatrices d'economies d'energie. Parmi celles-ci, l'utilisation des capteurs solaires associes a une couverture de plan d'eau presente une option technique et economique interessante. Afin de demontrer la rentabilite d'une telle application, l'AFME a entrepris avec le soutien financier de la Commission des Communautes europeennes de promouvoir un programme de solarisation de piscines sur une echelle significative. Quatre piscines couvertes et 19 piscines de plein-air ont ete equipees sur l'ensemble du territoire franccais. La repartition geographique des installations et la diversite des technologies employees constituent l'aspect innovant du programme. 23 solar-heated swimming-pools in France Demonstration project The energy consumption level of swimming-pools in France reaches a total of 400 000 toe, shared out between open- air pools (100 000 toe) and covered pools (300 000 toe). This situation led contractors and public authorities to examine the various energy-saving technologies available. Among them, the use of solar contractors combined with a system for covering the surface of the water proved to be an interesting technical and economical proposition. In order to demonstrate the system's profitability, the AFME set up a programme to promote the solarization of swimming-pools on a significant scale, with the financial support of the Commission of the European Communities. Four covered pools and 19 open-air pools were equipped in this way throughout the whole of France. The geographical distribution of these installations, and the diversity of the technologies employed constitute the innovatory aspect of the programme.
