Polymeric Materials for Solar Thermal Applications

Task 39 Exhibition

On the Road to a New Generation of Solar Thermal Energy Systems

Task 39 exhibited a range of polymer-based components for solar thermal systems at the Solar Heating and Cooling Conference SHC 2013 in Freiburg, Germany (September 23-25, 2013). Information about the exhibtion was published in the recent Solar Update 2013-06, page 6-7 and Solar Update 2014-02, page 1-2 and in Energy Procedia vol. 48.

The Task 39 Exhibition was the first of its kind to put selected polymeric collectors, storage tanks and other components on stage. Next to polymeric collectors and thermosiphon systems from Magen Eco Energy, the companies Aventa AS, Roth, Enerconcept, Consolar and Kompetenzzentrum Holz GmbH showcased pioneering solar thermal collectors for building integration, polymer-based air collectors, collector storage tanks and innovative wood plastic composites (WPC). Additional information on current research activities was provided by associated Task 39 research institutes and partners like Fraunhofer ISE, SWT Stuttgart, PCCL and the University of Leoben as well as Sunlumo.

Thus highlighting established and novel combinations of polymeric components, the exhibition showed a range of possibilities for re-thinking solar thermal. The Task 39 experts invited all interested parties to visit the Task 39 truck in front of the conference venue „Konzerthaus“ in Freiburg, Germany.
