A: System Survey and Dissemination of Task Results
The objective of Subtask A is to present to a wide audience various solar combisystems designs and their figures or merits, so as to increase the penetration of good solar combisystems on the market. The production of a yearly newsletter, targetted at the solar industry, a colour brochure presenting existing and new solar combisystems and the preparation of a handbook on solar combisystems are the main results of this Subtask.

B: Development of Performance Test Methods and Numerical Models for Combisystems and their Components
The objective of Subtask B is to provide reliable means for evaluating and comparing different solar combisystem components and designs. This objective will be achieved by selecting existing performance test methods for evaluating, rating and comparing elements of solar combisystems, or developing new procedures, and by providing component numerical models needed to assess performances during tests as well as models for systems needed to stimulate and optimise system configurations.
Subtask Lead Counrty: The Netherlands
C: Optimisation of Combisystems for the Market
The objective of Subtask C is to enhance existing solar combisystem designs through optimisation based on simulation models of the systems and to help industry to develop new system designs that can improve thermal and economical performances and durability. Aspects such as reliability will also be considered.
