One of the largest roof integrated thermal solar systems in Europe has been realized in Haro, La Rioja – Spain. Its 1.500 m² surface area of Solar Roof AS bring a huge nominal so-lar power of 1.4 MW. The solar thermal energy is used both for swimming pool heating and hot water production of the complete sports centre. The facilities of this sports centre include 2 indoor swimming pools of 25 x 16 m respectively 16 x 9 m, a fi tness centre, and multi sports hall. Around 1000 people per day visit this sportscentre. The solar yield of this system is around 500 kWh/m²/year. The Solar Roof AS turns the whole roof into an effi cient solar collector. It is an attractive alternative to more conventional discrete solar panels. It integrates renewable energy into the architecture of a building – aversting between 300 and 700 Wh/m² of thermal energy per year. On the sports centre of Haro was designed a smoothly curved Solar Roof AS. It has fully succeeded to reconcile the functionality of a thermal solar system with aesthetical ap-pealing architecture. The fully modular solar panels are perfectly integrated in the building.
