Europe: Four Trade Fairs and Conferences for New Solar Thermal Applications
May and June are going to be sunny: These two months will see many conferences and fairs on solar thermal technologies take place all around the world (see the Calendar of Events http://www.solarthermalworld.org/calender). We have picked out four particularly interesting events which focus on solar district heating, renewable heat, process heat and the latest technology. Please let us know if you think the database is missing any important solar heating and cooling dates (email@example.com).
Solar District Heating Conference, Hamburg, Germany:
The second International Solar District Heating Conference invites market actors and experts on the topic to Hamburg, Germany, on 3 and 4 June 2014 for an exchange of experiences, as well as for international networking opportunities. Key topics are the technical system integration of solar thermal into district heating, smart district heating systems, including solar thermal, SDH for housing areas and villages, policy, market strategies and business models, as well as new products, technologies and services. The first conference on solar district heating, which took place in Malmö, Sweden, on 9 and 10 April 2013 sparked great international interest and attracted 120 participants from 19 countries. For more information, please download the event flyer on the conference web page.
Intersolar Europe 2014, Munich, Germany: Intersolar 2014 will take place in Munich, Germany, from 4 to 6 June 2014. The exhibition is one of the world’s largest solar technology trade fairs and a must for everyone in the solar industry. Intersolar has so far focused only on the photovoltaic and solar thermal sector. According to a press release, solar heat generation will gain a more prominent role in 2014 and include additional renewable heating systems, such as wood-chip and pellet heating systems, mini combined heat and power plants, cogeneration systems and heat pumps. The new focus on renewable heat is said to be complemented by a three-day forum on the topic in hall C4 of the exhibition centre.
