New Romanian Solar Heating Manufacture
Solar Collectors of 2 m2, Mounted on the
Roof of a House in Bucharest
The price for the new Romanian collectors is about a half of the price of Western collectors per square meter, or about 200 EUR/m2. Storage tanks (300 ltr for the system on the above picture) is provided by the Romanian company ICMA in Bucharest and pumps and controls are imported from Germany.
SOLARTERM has also been involved in a spectacular solar demonstration project. The project is situated on a building from the Valahia University in Targoviste, around 150 Km NW of Bucharest, and it is part of an European program ICOP. A Solar amphitheatre is provided with PV panels. The access to this large space is covered with solar collectors. The solar collectors have a slope of 45 degrees on the south side.

and German Solar Collectors.
While it is hard to change the peoples mentality concerning environment
and energy saving, and get interest in technologies such as solar heating,
the gradual increase of the energy prices could help companies as SOLARTERM
to promote the renewable energy in Romania. In the company, they hope to
develop the sector in Romania, also with collaboration and partnerships
with other companies.
