Objectives / concepts


The Solar Heat and Heat Storage research programme of the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE) aims to make solar thermal systems for buildings competitive thanks to innovation and technological improvements.

Its main activities include:

  • Support and strengthening of the established competence centres 
  • Co-ordination with other research programmes (buildings, photovoltaics, heat pumps, biomass, geothermal energy, electricity, solar chemistry) 
  • Participation in national and international networks (International Energy Agency [IEA], symposia, Eurosun)

Representation of the interests of research and the Swiss solar energy industry in international bodies, e.g. European Solar Thermal Technology Platform (ESTTP).
