European Solar Thermal Energy Conference

As Secretary General of the European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF), I was one of the initiators and the manager of the first international industry conference of the solar heating sector.

After its successful first edition in 2003, the event grew constantly in the following 2005 and 2007 editions, becoming the globally leading event of the sector. In 2005 and 2007, I was the chairman of the programme committee.

Since 2012, the estec tradition has been continued by ESTIF in collaboration with the IEA Solar Heating & Cooling Programme in form of the International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry (SHC 2013).
