Solar Heating Systems to Energize Center Stage at Intersolar Europe

Solar Heating Systems to Energize Center Stage at Intersolar EuropeIntersolar Europe, the world’s largest exhibition for the solar industry, will introduce new technological solutions for solar heating to an audience of trade specialists and interested visitors from June 9 – 11 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre.

Within the “SOLARHAUS 50+” special exhibition, Intersolar Europe will present a concept through which a building can cover at least half of its heating needs using solar heat.

Solar thermal energy is generated through the conversion of solar energy into useful heat energy. However, the potential of solar thermal technology, particularly in supplying heat for buildings and homes, has not yet been fully realized. According to forecasts from the German Solar Thermal Technology Platform (DSTTP), in no more than 20 years solar thermal technology will be the main generator of heat in domestic heating systems and no longer just a minor addition. Furthermore, it will not only provide heating, but also cooling and air conditioning, or energy for industrial processes. Industry, politics and science have come together within the technology platform in pursuit of a shared vision – to make heating systems driven entirely by the sun’s energy standard in new housing by 2030. At the same time, solar renovation in old buildings should also become a part of daily business within the skilled trades.

SOLARHAUS 50+ special exhibition at Intersolar Europe

The “SOLARHAUS 50+” special exhibition at Intersolar Europe, the world’s largest exhibition for solar technology, demonstrates how the sun’s energy can be used in heating homes today. Interested visitors will find the special exhibition in Hall C2, booth C2.310. It presents options for solar renovation and explains which steps are necessary for obtaining the highest levels of solar energy coverage in buildings. The special exhibition centers on the SOLARHAUS 50+ concept, through which a house can cover at least half of its heating needs using solar heat. This can be realized most easily in new buildings, though even existing buildings can gain the title SOLARHAUS 50+. Expert partners of the special exhibition are the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, the Stuttgart University Institute for Thermodynamics and Thermal Engineering and the Sonnenhaus Institute.

Presentation series on solar housing

The “SOLARHAUS 50+” special exhibition will be complemented by a special presentation series on solar houses and possibilities for solar renovation. Experts will present current technological developments at the special exhibition area in Hall C2, booth C2.310. Here, visitors will not only have the chance to gain information about the field at first hand, but will also be able to discuss the latest technologies and political conditions with experts.

Intersolar Europe will take place from June 9 – 11 at the New Munich Trade Fair Centre.
