In households on average more than 75% of all energy used is consumed in the form of heat. Industry also has a high demand for heat, whether for space heating, water heating, or for processes. The SFOE Solar Heat and Heat Storage research programme aims to promote development of advanced solutions for efficient technological and economic use of solar heat. This includes the provision of energy through to components for solar thermal energy and to storage of heat, which is most important to the development and integration of systems in renewable supply systems.
The Solar Heat and Heat Storage research programme focusses on heating and cooling of buildings.
