Price Reduction of Solar Thermal Systems

Price Reduction of Solar Thermal Systems

This Task aims at the purchase price reduction for end-users of installed solar thermal systems by evaluating and developing sustainable means to reduce production and/or installation costs on material, sub-component, system-component and system level. Special emphasis is placed on the identification and reduction of post-production cost drivers, e.g.channels of distribution. An extensive market research and the definition of reference systems, cost analyses, and the study of socio-political boundary conditions for solar thermal prices in selected regions will provide the basis for the evaluation of cost-structures and the cost reduction potential. Additionally, ways to make solar thermal more attractive by improved marketing and consumer-oriented design will be explored.
