By: Pamela Murphy
The International Energy Agency's Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) has formalized relationship with ISO TC 180 Solar Energy. This liaison creates a clear path for IEA SHC results to be implemented in ISO standards. “Measuring the solar resources available for solar applications is an important goal of this partnership,” says Ms. Erandi Chandrasekare, Secretary of ISO TC180 “As well as improving the performance of solar heating and cooling systems by standardizing the measurements of performance, reliability and durability.”

Technology Roadmap: Solar Heating and Cooling
July 2012 - PDF 3.32MB
Publisher: IEA
Solar heating and cooling (SHC) can provide low-carbon emission energy from solar resources that are widespread throughout the world. SHC describes a wide range of technologies, from mature domestic hot water heaters to those just entering the demonstration phase, such as solar thermally driven cooling. This roadmap envisages development and deployment of solar heating and cooling by 2050 to produce 16.5 EJ (4 583 TWhth; 394 Mtoe) solar heating annually, more than 16% of total final energy use for low temperature heat, and 1.5 EJ solar cooling, nearly 17% of total energy use for cooling by that time.
