Solar Air Heating and Cooling Systems – A next IEA SHC Task?

The event is taking place to invite and discuss with interested peers, scientist and manufactures the structure and goals of a new to be drafted IEA SHC task on SAHC. It will introduce the work of IEA SHC tasks and afterwards delve into discussions and presentations of ideas, wishes, requests and visions for the task. It will be wrapped up in a discussion to identify "head lines" of sub-tasks and ask for first interests of leadership.
