Подпись: Figure 10.5. The Solar Keymark logo

The standards for collectors and factory-made systems EN 12975-1 &2 and EN 12976-1&2, as described in Sections 10.2.1 and 10.3 respectively, will serve as the basis for a European certificate for solar thermal products. At the time of publication, the European Solar Industry Federation ESTIF and 13 test institutions representing 11 European countries are working together to establish the so-called Solar Keymark (see Figure 10.5). The Solar Keymark certifies conformity of solar collectors and factory-made solar domestic hot water systems with the European standards (Nielsen, 2001).

The Solar Keymark is one of several Keymarks that make up the official CEN/CENELEC European Certification Mark System for demonstrating compliance of products with European standards (CEN/CENELEC, 2001). This general Keymark is a third-party certification mark demonstrating to users and consumers reliable quality and reliable performance information. The accompanying Mark Scheme includes not only the link to the standards but also a link to the requirements on factory production control according to ISO 9000, including periodic surveillance. Bodies engaged in certification, testing and inspection must fulfil the requirements of the relevant EN 45000/17000 series standard in order for them to be accredited for the scope of their activity.

Keymarks can only be issued in conjunction with national marks. These national marks may, however, contain limited additional requirements, e. g. building regulations, specific safety aspects and further processing of performance figures.

The objective of the Solar Keymark is to open up the European market and establish a common European quality mark. The Solar Keymark will be voluntary, but it is expected that it will be widely used because the European standards are implemented as national standards in all CEN member countries. More up-to-date information can be found at the Solar Keymark website: http://www. solarkeymark. org.

Plate 4. Roof-integrated collectors. The far left and far right sections of the roof are dummies. As they are the same colour as the centre section, there is a uniform look to the whole roof. In this case, two roof windows have also been integrated into the collector roof (Source: AEE INTEC, Austria). See also Figure 5.15, page 105

Plate 7. In regions with snow, fagade-integrated collectors for solar combisystems have several advantages: no snow cover on the collectors and high irradiation on the fagade due to reflection from snow (Source: AKS DOMA, Austria). See also Figure 5.21, page 111
