ESTIF - European Solar Thermal Industry Federation

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The Solar Keymark was created to certify solar thermal collectors and solar thermal systems, storages and controllers at European level. The aim is to reduce trade barriers and promote the use of high quality solar thermal products in the European market and beyond. The Solar Keymark is a CEN/CENELEC voluntary third-party certification mark for solar thermal products, demonstrating to end-users that a product conforms to the relevant European standards and fulfils additional requirements.

Energy Statistics should include the estimation of the solar thermal energy produced and, with this objective in mind, the International Energy Agency Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA-SHC) and major solar thermal industry associations agreed on a common calculation method to estimate the annual solar collector energy output in kWh. With this method it will be simpler to estimate the impressive amount of energy produced by solar thermal systems worldwide and compare it with other (renewable) energy sources.
