Materials in Solar Thermal Collectors
Description / Aim
The Working Group was established in the autumn of 1994 as an extension of work which had been conducted on solar collector absorbers in Subtask B of Task 10 - Solar Materials R&D. Sweden was assumed the leadership of the group in the initial phase of work.
The objectives of the working group are:
The following areas have been identified for joint research work:
In each of these areas a number of well defined projects will be conducted. It is the responsibility of the appointed Project Leaders to take the necessary actions needed to initiate, conduct and report the work in the form of internal working documents or most preferably through conference papers.
A summery report on the results of the entire working group will be documented in the form of an IEA Technical report. The main responsibility for managing the joint research work will be placed on the Project Leaders. The part played by the Working Group Leader will be that of a co-ordinator.
The activities of this working group have been scheduled for a time period from October 1994 until a follow-up Task will be started.
