Using solar thermal energy to supply the various thermal demands of the building, industrial and agricultural sectors, is one of the most efficient and economical ways to take advantage of an abundant and indigenous resource, which is also free and available at the point of consumption.
Its use means a reduction in the consumption of primary energy and in CO2 emissions corresponding to the energy source it replaces which had previously met these demands. It therefore means improved energy efficiency in buildings, industries, etc. where solar thermal energy is incorporated.
Solar thermal technology is a mature technology which has been widely implemented in the building sector over the last few years. The current technological development and the high reliability of solar installations allow them to be easily integrated into buildings and industries.
The current technology means that solar thermal installations require minimal maintenance and have control systems for remote monitoring, thus guaranteeing safety and ease of use.
