|| This webinar will highlight the key data and findings of the two most recent SHC market reports: Solar Heat Worldwide. Global Market Development and Trends in 2018 from IEA Solar Heating and Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) and Renewables 2019. Global Status Report from REN21.
The cumulated solar thermal capacity in operation by end of 2018 was 480 GWth (686 million square meters). Compared to the year 2000 the installed capacity grew by the factor 7.7. Despite these achievements, the global solar thermal market has faced challenging times in recent years. In 2018 very positive growth figures in nine of the top 20 countries worldwide point to a turnaround in the market for solar thermal energy. Also, the number of megawatt-scale systems for district heating as well as for industrial applications show positive trends. A number of promising projects have been implemented ranging from small-scale demonstration plants to very large systems with 100 MWth capacity. Last but not least hybrid photovoltaic-thermal collectors and applications have reached a market volume that is notable. By the end of 2018, more than one million square meters of PVT collectors had been in operation.
