The IEA Solar Heating & Cooling Programme (IEA SHC) and the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF) are pleased to announce SHC 2013, the International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry, from September 23-25, 2013 in Freiburg, Germany.

SHC 2013 will be the second edition of this new series of annual scientific conferences on solar heating and cooling. During the successful launch of SHC 2012 in San Francisco from July 9-11, 220 experts from 31 countries discussed the latest developments in solar heating and cooling as well as solar buildings.
We heard about technological advancements in thermal storage, cost competitive large-scale projects, successful public-private partnerships to develop regional solar thermal markets, and much, much more.

For the 2013 edition of the conference, IEA SHC is joining forces with ESTIF which brings its own history of five successful ESTEC conferences, now continuing as SHC 2013, aiming to add a strong industry focus.

The SHC 2013 conference offers a unique discussion platform for the international solar thermal community. We invite all researchers and technical experts, as well as marketing specialists and policy makers, to present their work, and exchange views and ideas. In addition to key technical topics, the conference will also address market and policy issues from an international perspective. SHC 2013 will be the solar heating and cooling conference of 2013.

Please note that the 5th International Conference Solar Air-Conditioning takes place in Bad Krozingen (close to Freiburg) in the same week. This offers the great opportunity to gain latest information about solar heating, cooling and refrigeration visiting the two global top events in this field in the same week and place. A special discount will be provided for participants of both conferences.
