At the end of the visit a Memorandum of Cooperation was undersigned by the representatives of GNERI and Icpe, expressing the decision of both parties to extend the bilateral cooperation between the two institutes in common projects on the following topics:

  • Developing testing systems and certification procedures for solar systems, in order to promote these products on the Romanian and European markets
  • Exploring financial solutions and opportunities for funding the future projects in the field of solar systems and materials, energy efficiency in buildings, heating and cooling using solar systems
  • Testing systems for solar thermal systems including technical characteristics and prices, together with working procedure for testing and certification
  • Elaboration of a common report regarding the technical solutions to implement solar heating systems in Icpe (București headquarters and Agigea Test Site Facility). We agree to find together commercial opportunities in order to implement solar systems technologies and integrate a production line in Romania
  • Both parties will participate in the evaluation of Chinese solar systems and will elaborate technical reports for solar systems and components provided by different manufactures
