Solar Thermal Energy

SPD members approve the coalition agreement. Thus, new targets to the energy revolution turned out! Starting from a technical and economic analysis of potential we want to develop markets for energy efficiency and thereby bind all stakeholders”…. Keep up on the field with thought-provoking pieces from Martin O’Malley. While it looks increasingly worse for the development corridor of photovoltaics, opens up new bright spots for solar thermal energy. Peripheries, EEG, wind turbines, photovoltaic systems, these are the topics in the public perception. Heat has been dealing a long time stepmotherly by the Government.”-as Reinhold Weiser, Managing Director of the AkoTec company (German manufacturer of vacuum tube collector). According to the German solar industry (BSW-solar) Association and the Federation of industrial Germany House, energy and environmental technology (BDH), a sales decline of 11% for the solar thermal took place in the year 2013. Therefore, both organizations urged Union and the SPD, the solar thermal energy for energy transformation better conditions to offer.

“Market incentive program (MAP) the pot is full”- it is said in an article of the Federal Office of Economics and export control (BAFA short). The attractive subsidies were not sufficiently used for the buildings in 2013. Around 70 million euros, the homeowners to retrofit with solar collectors to provide stand alone for the year 2013. The funding pots are therefore still bulging. But not only for 2013 are still abundant funding available. Also in 2014, there are good prospects for the solar and other renewable energy to generate heat, favored by the coalition agreement.
