IEA Task 64/IV
Solar Process Heat 1st Experts Meeting

March 26th


Information on "Coronavirus": Update: The Experts Meeting will be organised as an online meeting. The Industry Workshop has been cancelled. 
For participating please send an e-mail to Prof. Dr. Andreas Häberle, SPF: . It is planned to catch up on the Industry Workshop on a later date, possibly at another place.

Welcome to the 1st Experts Meeting on Solar Process Heat of the joint IEA SHC Task 64 and SolarPACES Task IV on March 26th 2020. You are cordially invited to join the Task Meeting online

The industrial sector accounts for approximately 30% of the total energy consumption in the OECD countries. The major share of the energy that is needed in industrial companies, services and agriculture is used for heating and cooling of buildings and for production processes at temperatures from ambient up to approx. 400-500°C. This is a temperature range that can well be addressed with solar thermal technologies.

The newly founded IEA Task “Solar Process Heat” addresses this field of energy supply within subtasks which will be discussed on March 26th:
Subtask A: Integrated energy systems
Subtask B: Modularization 
Subtask C: Simulation and design tools
Subtask D: Standardization/Certification
Subtask E: Guideline to market

We are looking forward to meeting you at Solar Process Heat 1st Experts Meeting and Industry Workshop in Cologne.
