The paper gives an overview of the development of solar thermal technology in the European Community over the last decade, especially for the residential and commercial/tertiary sector. Hence, the criteria used are not purely economic as solar energy represents a real advantage for the environment (global warming, pollution hazards and acid rains). These important social benefits are discussed and considered for the selection of future options.
