European Solar Thermal Industry Federation

ESTIF – The Voice of Solar Thermal in Europe.

The European Solar Thermal Industry Federation (ESTIF) represents around 100 members consisting of manufacturers, service providers and national associations, which together cover 95% of today’s solar thermal market.

Our mission is to achieve high priority and acceptance for solar thermal as a key element of sustainable heating and cooling in Europe and to work for the implementation of all steps necessary to realise the high potential of solar thermal and to achieve a 50% solar thermal share of the European heat demand in 2050.

As part of its mission ESTIF also supports Research and Development activities through the co-ordination of the European Renewable Heating and Cooling Technology Platform.

Currently, over 30 000 people are already employed in the European solar thermal sector and the great potential of solar thermal is reflected in the creation of new job opportunities in the manufacturing and installation of solar thermal collectors in Europe.

Key activities of ESTIF

  • Representing the sector at European level
  • Promoting Solar Thermal Heating and Cooling in Europe to achieve the target of 1 m2 of collector area for every European in 2020
  • Shaping policies and contributing to the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive at national level
  • Opening markets for solar thermal products and services
  • Organising public campaigns and major solar thermal events like the European Solar Days or the biennial European Solar Thermal Energy Conference
