Price Reduction of Solar Thermal Systems

Project (Task) Objectives

Task 54 works towards a reduction of the purchase price of selected solar thermal systems up to 40% contrasted to applied reference systems. This goal shall be achieved by:

  • Simplified system designs
  • Less but innovative and cost-efficient materials
  • Standardized components (e.g. collector, storage tank), subcomponents (e.g. connectors, casing parts) and installation
  • Low production costs
  • Plug & play systems for a simplified installation
  • Reduced maintenance and operation costs

The research activities shall be specifically targeted at the needs and potentials of different markets and offer tailored solutions for affordable solar thermal systems at a competitive price.
