Abstract:The background of the research is Decreasing Energy Demand due to implementation of Renewable Energy Technology small projects, based on European regulations and National targets in the Netherlands. EU have defined targets on Renewable Energy production shares for all member states. The average of this share for whole of the EU countries is 20% in 2020 and 14% specifically for the Netherlands (33,34,41,49). It seems, due to problems related to “Social Acceptance”, “Improper Energy Systems” and “Lack of Knowledge” these targets could not be achieved at the deadline. (41,50,52) This research is focused on the “Social Acceptance” and “System Design” of one of Renewable Energy Technologies, “Solar Thermal Energy”, in the Netherlands. The data come from, in-depth literature study, mathematical modeling, interviews and survey. Additionally, due to analyze the data the mixed methods will be applied. Qualitative and Quantitative analysis will be done and the results will be used directly to generate recommendation. In addition, the other aim is define and assess the Criteria which have influence on Design a new “Solar Thermal System for Heating the Houses” in the Netherlands. Due to 50% of the energy which consume in the houses is related to the heating and cooling of the space and also, lack of proper thermal design for houses in the Netherlands, this thesis is focused on this area. Furthermore, a conceptual model design which could be developed and installed in Friesland Province, the City of Leeuwarden for instance, will be recommended.
