Nye "tasks" i IEA-SHC

The Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC) har tre nye "tasks" som kan være relevante for norske miljøer. Her følger et kort sammendrag av disse, inkludert kontaktinformasjon, på engelsk.

General information about the IEA-SHC:

The Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (SHC) was established in 1977, one of the first programmes of the International Energy Agency, to promote the use of all aspects of solar thermal energy. The Programme's work is unique in that it is accomplished through the international collaborative effort of experts from member countries and the European Union.

New tasks

1) Solar Neighbourhood Planning
- Status: This planned IEA-SHC task is in the so-called “concept phase”*.
- Contact person: Prof. Maria Wall: maria.wall@ebd.lth.se
Dept of Architecture and Built Environment / Arkitektur och Byggd Miljö
Lund University / Lunds Universitet, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

Key objectives: Identify and develop planning strategies and concepts for increased solar energy utilization in neighbourhood areas, with a long-term perspective. This includes active solar thermal, PV, passive solar and daylighting – both for buildings and outdoor environments. 
Target group/expertise needed: Architects, engineers, planners, users/developers of “tools", skills in economy and business models, researchers and practitioners. 
* 1. Concept phase - 2. Approval by ExCo - 3. Make common workplan (and search for national partners & funding) - 4. Approval by ExCo - 5. Official IEA SHC task start

2) Task 60: PVT systems - Application of PVT collectors and new solutions in HVAC systems
- Status: This IEA task has recently started. Task duration: Jan 1, 2018 to Dec 31, 2020.
- Contact person: Jean-Christophe Hadorn, Solar Energies & Strategies, Switzerland: jchadorn@gmail.com
- Website: http://task60.iea-shc.org
- Details on work organisation: http://task60.iea-shc.org/about

Key objectives: The application of PVT collectors. The aim is to assess existing solutions and to develop new system solutions principles in which the PVT technology really offers advantages over classical “side by side installations” of solar thermal collectors and PV modules. Energy yield, exergetic efficiency, KPIs, simulation tools, sensitivity analysis, benefits, competitive cost, safety and reliability of systems are therefore in the scope of the task. Increasing awareness of the PVT solutions to all stakeholders is also a key objective.

Target group/expertise needed: Research and engineering institutions, suppliers of PVT solutions.

3) Life Cycle Assessment for Solar Heating and Cooling Technologies
- Status: This planned IEA-SHC working group has already prepared a workplan for the task and is looking for interested experts.
- Contact person: Michael Köhl: michael.koehl@ise.fraunhofer.de
Fraunhofer-Institut für Solare Energiesysteme ISE, Freiburg, Germany

Key objectives: Identification, monitoring and influencing of existing and upcoming regulations and standards for environmental performance of solar heating and cooling technologies (including also PV for heating and cooling). The proposal is open to small as well as to large scale SHC-technologies, system components are explicitly included.

Target group/expertise needed: Research and engineering institutions, public bodies working with eco labelling.
