Solar Heating in Europe - Challenges and Opportunities

Experts in the field of solar heating give detailed presentations and answer questions from the audience. Prof. Wolfgang Streicher (Austria) gives a presentation on the topic "R&D for solar thermal+PV coupled with heat pumps". Prof. Jan- Olof Dalenbäck (Sweden) speask about solar district heating in his presentation.

During the webinar, Victor Martinez Moll explains more about EuroSun conferences and gives you a sneak peek into the exciting plans for the EuroSun 2016 in Palma (Mallorca) this October. For more information about the conferece, visit:

EuroSun 2016 Conference - Victor Martinez Moll


Prof. Wolfgang Streicher

Prof. Wolfgang Streicher studied Mechanical Engineering at Graz University of Technology. He holds the char of energy efficient buildings and Renewable Energy in the Civil Engineering Faculty of the University of Innsbruck. It represents a link between classical civil engineering in the building sector and the more mechanical engineering driven HVAC (Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning) system and the use of renewable energy (solar, biomass, ambient heat) in buildings. He is working in the field of solar thermal systems since 1993. He was subtask leader in IEA SHC Task 26 for simulation IEA SHC Task 32 for phase change materials and active in the further IEA SHC Tasks 25, 38 (Solar assisted cooling) and 42 (new storage technologies). He was and is involved in several other national and international projects dealing with low energy buildings, HVAC systems, biomass burners, active and passive solar thermal energy use, and lighting and energy scenarios and in the introduction of the EPBD in Austria.

Prof. Jan Olof-Dalenbäck

Prof. Jan Olof-Dalenbäck is professor in Buildings Services Engineering, Dept. Civil and Environmental Engineering, Chalmers University of Technology, Gothenburg, Sweden. Jan-Olof Dalenbäcks R&D focus is on reduced use of energy in buildings and other spaces that have demands on a certain climate and/or activity. His special topics are solar energy applications and energy efficiency. He is profile leader in Energy Area of Advance och participates as expert and advisor in different national and international, academic and industry, groupings. He got IEA SHC Solar Award 2005 and ISES Special Service Award 2009.

Víctor Martínez

Víctor Martínez is professor at the Polytechnic School of the University of the Balearic Islands, he works in the Energy Engineering Research Group on the development and analysis of solar thermal collectors and he is the Chair of the Scientific Committee of the Eurosun 2016.

Additional services

Webinar recording

We understand that sometimes the time of the webinar may not suit people in many parts of the world. While we try to alternate webinar times to suit as many time zones as possible, it is not always possible. Therefore, we will post the recording of the webinar and the presentations, on this webpage for 24 hours after the live event. After 24 hours, the webinar recording will be posted in the Members Area only.

ISES Members Area

As a special service for ISES members, the recording and presentations of this webinar will be posted in the ISES Members Area. Recordings from past webinars are also filed here for you to watch again when you like. To access the ISES Members Area, simply log into your ISES account ( and select "Members Area" from the top menu. Select "Webinars" and then choose which webinar recording you would like to view. 

Certificate of Participation

ISES members may also request a certificate of participation. This is a document stating you attended this event and may be useful for your Resume or as a reminder of this webinar.

Questions and Answers

During the live webinar, there is a "questions and answers" session within the last 10 to 20 minutes. Unfortunately not all questions from participants can be answered in the time-frame of the webinar. However, we collect your questions and the panelists take time to answer them after the live webinar. The answers are then posted in the ISES Members Area, for you to read through in your own time.
