EvaSP – Evaluation of solar process heat systems

The interest in solar process heat for industrial applications is increasing worldwide. For future perspectives and realization of further solar collector fields an assessment of the current state is necessary.


Within the framework of the project EvaSP (Evaluation of solar process heat systems) funded by the Swiss Federal Office for Energy SFOE, several solar collector fields used for processes heat in different industrial branches are energetically and economically evaluated. This project will give an overview of the performance of these collector fields as well as suggestions for suppliers and planners. Furthermore, the results of this evaluation will aid entrepreneurs and investors in the decision-making process and support the implementation of solar thermal energy in industry.
