The CEC Solar Collector Testing Group began work in 1975 and, as a
result of collaborative work between more than 20 laboratories
during two 4 year R&D Programmes, produced many significant
publications concerning test methods for solar collectors.
The Group was renamed in late 1984 as the Collector and System
Testing Group to reflect its new programme of work from January
1985 to December 1987 which concentrated mainly on the development
of test methods for solar water heating systems, although
activities on test methods for air collectors and for unglazed
collectors were also carried out.
The aims of the Group's work were:
i) To carry out research and development which would help with
assessments of the short/medium term potential of small
active solar heating systems in Europe. Emphasis was given to
cost-effectiveness, and the work involved studies of solar
water heaters, swimming pool heaters, pre-heat systems, and
crop driers.
ii) To provide technical input for other organisations who are
drafting standards for solar energy systems including
National Standards bodies, ISO, and UEAtc.
iii) To provide technical information for industry and users,
through the publication of papers, reports, modern
information systems, and close liaison.
The work of the Group was complementary to the programme of the CEC
Joint Research Centre at Ispra (JRC), where the recent 4 year
programme ran from January 1984 to December 1987. In order to
encourage collaborative work in particular areas, funding was
provided from the JRC to support on-going work in several European
laboratories. The work of the Group which is summarised in the
Contractors' Reports contained in Section 2 has provided
opportunities for a wide exchange of information between European
experts in the field of solar collector and DHW system testing.
Participants in the Group came from laboratories in most of the
countries in the European Community. The names of the participating
laboratories are listed overleaf and their locations are indicated
on the map. Further details of the participating laboratories may
be found in Section 3.
The work of the Group has been published regularly by the JRC,
presented at conferences and summarised in book form. Details of
the main CSTG publications are given in Section 4. PARTICIPATION IN THE CEC COLLECTOR AND SYSTEM
