Transpired Solar Collectors (TSCs) are a relatively new solar energy technology to the UK building-integrated renewable energy market. Since the first UK TSC was integrated with a profiling mill in County Durham in 2005, a further 19 commercial installations have ensued and have a combined absorber area totaling over 12,500m². Wales and England are home to some architecturally and technically innovative TSC designs. These include one of the world’s largest TSCs, a Cassette-Panel TSC array with special high-absorptivity selective coating and a TSC integrated with diurnal thermal storage. To accelerate the development of TSCs in Wales, the Welsh European Funding Office (WEFO) funded Sustainable Building Envelope Demonstration (SBED) project will monitor eight full-scale TSCs over two years to generate robust data on the feasibility of the technology.
