The IEA Technology Collaboration Programme was created with a belief that the future of energy security and sustainability starts with global collaboration. The TCP is made up of thousands of experts across government, academia, and industry dedicated to advancing common research and the application of specific energy technologies.

The 2020 Annual Report summarizes and highlights all our work during the year.  The report also includes a Feature Article on PVT -- Today and Tomorrow.

In 2018, the IEA SHC Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) members used the year to plan for the future, to reflect on past accomplishments, and to transition to a new Executive Committee Chair. All of which supported our underlying pursuit to be the leading and influencing international collaborative research program that produces high quality data and research on solar heating and cooling.

In 2016 the IEA SHC Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP) increased our activities to disseminate the knowledge that we have developed through the decades to a wider audience and thereby to enhance the expertise available to the sector. We initiated the Solar Academy to share our work and support R&D and implementation of solar heating and cooling projects worldwide. We formed a partnership with the International Solar Energy Society (ISES) to hold the International Solar Heating and Cooling Conference together with the Solar World Congress in 2017. We started three new Tasks and completed one Task.

2015 was a year of consolidation of our activities within the IEA SHC Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP). We held our fourth international conference in Turkey. We started a new task on reducing costs for solar thermal systems and completed four important Tasks. A number of other Tasks are in the development phase and we expect that they will begin in 2016. On the administrative side, we made changes to improve our operations.

2014 proved to be a year of growth and new frontiers for the SHC Programme. We welcomed four new members from across the globe – Gulf Organization for Research & Development (GORD), Regional Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (RCREEE), Turkey and the United Kingdom. We held our international conference in China. We started two new Tasks to tackle solar thermal and energy economics in urban environments and new generation solar cooling and heating systems. We completed two Tasks that have contributed valuable results in the areas of solar renovation in non-residential buildings and polymeric materials for solar thermal applications.

The Implementing Agreement for a Programme to Develop and Test Solar Heating and Cooling Systems (referred to as the Solar Heating and Cooling Programme or SHC Programme) was established in 1977 as one of the first Implementing Agreements in the IEA. The SHC Programme’s work is unique in that it is accomplished through the international collaborative effort of experts from Member countries and the European Commission. The benefits of such an approach are numerous, namely, it accelerates the pace of technology development, promotes standardization, enhances national R&D programmes, permits national specialization, and saves time and money

When the International Energy Agency (IEA) was founded in 1974, the main ob-jective of its member countries was to re-duce dependence on imported oil through the development of alternative energy sources while improving energy efficiency. More recently, concerns such as green-house gas emissions and globalization have underlined the need for international co-operation. To support these core is-sues, the IEA created a legal contract – Implementing Agreement – and a system of standard rules and regulations that would allow interested member and non-member governments to pool resources and research the development and de-ployment of particular technologies. For more than 30 years, technology collabora-tion has been a fundamental building block among IEA member and non-mem-ber countries in facilitating progress of new or improved energy technologies.
