Greentech Lead U.S: The IEA Solar Heating and
Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) and the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation
(ESTIF) will jointly host SHC event on 23-25 September 2013.
“SHC 2012 in San Francisco was a great event,” said
Werner Weiss, chairman of the IEA SHC who hosted the conference.”
SHC 2012 hosted more than 200 experts from 31 countries.
They discussed about technological advancements in thermal storage, cost-competitive
large-scale projects, successful public-private partnerships to develop
regional solar thermal markets, and more.
For the 2013 conference IEA SHC has joined forces with the European Solar
Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF). The European trade association has its own
history of five successful ESTEC conferences. The next ESTEC conference
will be integrated into SHC 2013, and once again be organized by PSE AG.
The conference committee of SHC 2013 is headed by Hans-Martin Henning of the
Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy and Xavier Noyon of the European Solar
Thermal Industry Federation. A call for papers will be published on 1 December
“We are very happy that IEA SHC has decided to host the next SHC conference in
Europe”, says ESTIF Secretary General Xavier Noyon.” It is our aim to add
a strong industry focus to SHC 2013. Clearly, SHC 2013 will
be the solar heating and cooling conference of 2013.”
