Current areas of research include:
- Combined solar/biomass and solar/heat pump systems for residential buildings.
- Solar thermal and PV in regional energy systems.
- Energy storage.
- Energy-efficient buildings and building materials.
- Socio-technical studies.
Researchers at SERC are involved in EU projects on the implementation of solar energy in the renovation of residential buildings and offices, solar heating in district-heating systems, and combined heat pump and solar heating systems for single-family dwellings.
