Transfer of experience for the development of solar thermal products (TRANS-SOLAR)

Download PDFDownload PDF
The project deals with transfer of experience between manufacturers and installers from the well developed solar thermal markets to the least developed. The information to be transferred consists of technical, marketing and policy knowledge. Besides, European standards and Solar Keymark certification scheme will be disseminated. The work programme mainly includes the development of information packages and the organization of workshops and business missions in Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Poland which will provide up to date information with marketing and product development techniques to installers.

Results

  • National reports for the 7 participating countries on the situation of the local solar thermal markets (available on the site both in national languages and in English)
  • A common information package with presentations on innovative technologies, product development, marketing incentives, European Standards and Solar Keymark certification procedures etc.
  • 7 specific information packages with the specific presentations-information provided during the event in each country
  • Programs and presentations of each workshop and business mission in the 7 participating countries
  • Database with market actors in each country; Calendar with events in the solar thermal sector; Factsheets on the findings of the national reports

Lessons learned

  • The markets in the targeted countries are constantly developing and are more mature.
  • There is interest for presentation of good practices and ways for market development in the developed countries from installers of solar thermal systems. Technical solutions are also of great interest to the audience.
  • Difficulties in finding “organised” information about market and legislation/financing issues in most of the targeted countries. It is difficult to attract companies to participate in business missions.
