Throughout the world, many new technologies and projects are currently being undertaken to assist in the reduction of fossil fuel consumption. While the focus has been in the electrical and transport sector, significant progress has been made in the realm of renewable heat and more specifically, solar heat for industrial processes.

Performance of a solar system or any other energy conversion system in general is often being considered in a too simplified way. Simple performance indicators or metrics like efficiency are often taken without any description of the operating and application conditions, of the system boundaries considered for its calculation. The performance of a system however can be described in a broader sense as a concept including energetical, economical and environmental aspects of a system operation for a defined time period. The system boundaries considered should be clearly defined, and the operating conditions according to the application should be specified.
