Solar thermal (code RA410)
Heat from solar radiation (sunlight) exploited for useful energy purposes. This includes, for example, solar thermal-electric plants and active systems for the production of sanitary hot water or for space heating of buildings. This energy production is the heat available to the heat transfer medium, i.e. the incident solar energy less the optical and collectors losses. Solar energy captured by passive systems for heating, cooling and lighting of buildings is not to be included; only solar energy in relation to the active systems is to be included.
