The primary activity of the SHC TCP is to develop research projects (Tasks) to study various aspects of solar heating and cooling. Each research project (Task) is managed by an Operating Agent who is selected by the Executive Committee. Overall control of the Programme rests with the Executive Committee comprised of one representative from each member Country and Sponsor organization.
