Architectural integration of solar thermal energy systems IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme

This database presents a range of buildings where solar thermal energy systems have been successfully integrated in the architecture.

Solar thermal - high-tech renewable energy with great performance!

The core element of a solar thermal installation is solar collectors that convert the energy in sunlight directly into usable heat. These collectors can be aesthetically integrated with the building envelope or they can be mounted onto a building. Solar thermal installations have high energy capacity, and end users therefore benefit of an attractive pay back on their investment.
