June Webinars with IEA SHC Solar Academy

In June, ISES is happy to once again host the IEA SHC Solar Academy series - this month on the topic of Solar Heating and Cooling Markets and Industry Trends.

To accommodate our global audiences from all around the world, the webinar will be held twice: one webinar on Tuesday, 21 June at 2PM GMT/UTC and a second broadcasted webinar with a separate Q/A session on Thursday, 23 June starting at 6AM GMT/UTC.

The webinars will highlight the global solar thermal market development as well as industry and business trends in 2021. A special focus will be placed on countries that again recorded very good growth rates, but also on large-scale systems in the field of solar district heating, solar heat for industrial processes and PVT systems, which have recorded remarkable market growth in recent years.
In addition, the enormous upheavals that have occurred in the Chinese solar thermal market in recent years will be presented.


The webinars will welcome the following three presentations:

  • Werner Weiss (AEE  INTEC, Austria): Solar Heat Worldwide - Solar Heating and Cooling Markets and Industry Trends in 2021
  • Ruicheng Zheng (China Academy of Building Research, China): China - Developments in the World's Largest Market
  • Bärbel Epp (solrico, Germany): Global Solar Heat Industry: A Close Look into Business and Technology Trends

The webinars will be moderated by Pedro Dias, Secretary General of Solar Heat Europe.


The webinars are organized by the IEA SHC Solar Academy and hosted by ISES. All webinars and Q/A sessions will be recorded and the recordings as well as the presentations given by the speakers will be made available online a few days after the webinars.
