Price Reduction of Solar Thermal Systems

Price Reduction of Solar Thermal Systems

Task 54's aim is the purchase price reduction of installed solar thermal systems up to 40%. Our projects investigate the complete value chain:

  • We evaluate and develop sustainable means to reduce production costs on material, component and system level.
  • We identify and reduce post-production cost drivers, e.g. channels of distribution, marketing, installation, O&M.
  • We evaluate cost-structures of manufacturers and their cost reduction potential.
  • We study socio-political boundary conditions and their effect on solar thermal prices.
  • We make solar thermal more attractive by improved marketing and consumer-oriented design.

Task 54 always welcomes new members and projects. If you wish to join one of our meetings please contact us.
