SHC Task 53: New Generation Solar Cooling & Heating Systems
(PV or solar thermally driven systems)

Task 53 WorkshopThe activities of the SHC Task 53 not only addresses solar-thermally driven heating, cooling and air-conditioning processes, but also expands its technology and system focus by combining photovoltaics with electrical heating, cooling and air-conditioning technology. Based on the findings and experiences from national and international projects on 'Solar Cooling and Heating' and 'Photovoltaics', the Austrian partners provide expertise, nationally developed SHC system concepts and methods. Furthermore, the Austrian participants actively contribute to the success of SHC Task 53 by coordinating and managing some tasks.

The international SHC Task 53 working group consists of research and business partners from Australia, China, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland and Spain.

The SHC Task 53 provides are a collection of suitable documents, guidelines and instruments, which support the national market players to realize high-quality, robust, reliable and energy-efficient SHC plants. Thus, SHC Task 53 delivers key information to support an increased deployment of the new generation of solar heating and cooling systems.

Following topics in the field of solar heating and cooling were discussed at the national IEA SHC Task 53 workshop:

• General information about the Task 53 goals and results
• Selected contribution from Austrian partners within the SHC Task 53
• National research projects, realized systems and innovative products for solar cooling
