Activity 1 of Subtask C is dedicated to prepare the testing and the monitoring methodology to measure the performances of the selected demo projects for NG H&C-Systems. A valorization of past and ongoing results from IEA SHC Task 38, 44 and 48 was done on how to properly monitor these systems, in order to achieve reliable indicators and significant information on the performance as well as primary energy savings and reduction of greenhouse gases, plus finally also on economic criteria.

IEA SHC Task 53 continues the work of earlier IEA SHC Tasks (Tasks 38, 48) to find solutions to make solar heating and cooling systems interesting and more cost competitive. The general objective of Subtask C is to stimulate, monitor and analyze performance of field test systems and demonstration projects of new generation solar cooling & heating systems.

The number of solar cooling and heating (SHC) systems is increasing permanently (Mugnier and Jakob, 2015) new technologies and different solutions are available on research level but also on the market (Mugnier, 2015). These systems are characterized by a high diversity of design possibilities including not only different cooling and heating technologies, but also a great variety of different renewable and non-renewable energy sources. Main obstacles for a wider and faster spread of solar cooling and heating are based on (i) lack of knowledge. (ii) technical issues but mainly on (iii) economics.

Monitoring of field test systems and demonstration projects for new generation solar cooling & heating systems is fundamental to analyze their performances, to identify, their possibilities and to verify the quality of the proposed solutions. This work is done in Subtask C, called “Testing and demonstration projects”, using the results of Subtasks A and B.
