Subtasks

Subtask A:
Market and Commercialisation of PV/T

Subtask Leader(s): Ami Elazari, Millennium Electric, Israel

In Subtask A: Market and Commercialisation of PV/T the objectives are to investigate and identify the critical design parameters and commercial performance criteria, which determine the targets and conditions for successful new components and systems. The objectives will be achieved by the conduction of a market survey of potential markets for PV/Thermal Solar Systems in the participating countries and identification of the primary commercial parameters.

Subtask B:
Energy Analysis and Modeling

Subtask Leader(s): Michael Collins, University of Waterloo, Canada, funded by Natural Resources Canada

The objectives of Subtask B: Energy Analysis and Modeling are to provide the necessary understanding of the energy transfer processes in PV/Thermal Solar Systems in order to define, to model and to predict the energy performance of the systems separately and in a whole building context.

Subtask C:
Product and System Development, Tests and Evaluation

Subtask Leader(s): Bj÷rn Karlsson, Lund University, Sweden, funded by the Swedish Energy Agency.

In Subtask C: Product and System Development, Tests and Evaluation the aims are to develop, test and evaluate PV/Thermal Solar System components and concepts and the experiences from products and components already on the market. The work includes R&D-activities in close collaboration with manufacturers of PV/Thermal Solar Systems in order to improve overall performance and solve generic problems with existing concepts and components.

Subtask D:
Demonstration Projects

Subtask Leader(s): Herbert Zondag, Energy research Centre of the Netherlands ECN, the Netherlands, funded by different sources

The aims of Subtask D: Demonstration Projects are to gain the knowledge from full-scale demonstration of PV/Thermal Solar Systems in order to verify and identify the potential for improvement of energy performance, expectations to reliability, durability and economical feasibility. This will be achieved by dialogue with project stakeholders, monitoring of selected projects and facilitation of workshops for design teams and task participants.

Subtask E:
Dissemination

Subtask Leader(s): Henrik S°rensen, Esbensen Consulting Engineers A/S, Denmark.

Finally, the objectives of Subtask E: Dissemination are to provide efficient and targeted information of the task results to all stakeholders of the Task and to make this information available to the target audiences through various media and formats according to the preferences of the target audience.
