Task 14 was initiated to advance the state-of-the-art in active solar energy systems. Many features developed during the few years before the start of the Task, when used alone or in combination, had the potential to significantly improve the performance of these systems. It was the objective of Task 14 to analyze, design, evaluate and, in some cases, construct and monitor a number of different systems incorporating one or more of these features. The large systems working group within the Task examined large scale heating systems involving temperatures under 200°C. Five large systems were studied. This report covers three of those systems. Two other projects, Solar desalination in Spain, and an Industrial process heat project in Switzerland, are reported separately.
