Integration of solar thermal systems in buildings
The technical evaluation of solar thermal systems in buildings requires a systematic approach, in order to make comparisons with other systems and extrapolations to other locations and climates possible. This activity concentrates on the development of formal sheets for the technical description, guidelines for monitoring and technical evaluation of the system, application to a selected set of projects and updating of the documents. The methodology of evaluation encompasses the performance of the system, the reliability of the components, the effectiveness of different control strategies, proposals for improvements in design, and the impact of the introduction of solar systems on both employment and the environment.
