The first IEA SHC Task 54 workshop was held in the framework of the ESTTP workshop "Solar Thermal Energy for Europe" (24-25 May 2016) in Brussels, Belgium. Jointly organized with the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation ESTIF, the event attracted solar thermal specialists from industry, research and politics who joined in lively discussions on the challenging goal of Task 54. While all participants agreed that the savings potential is considerably high when thinking about solar thermal applications, there is still a long road ahead as pricing structures differ from country to country and system to system. How Task 54 can tackle the complex framework was only one of the questions of the 1,5 hours workshop.
