ISO/TC 180 includes standardization in the field of measuring solar radiation and using solar energy for space and water heating, cooling, industrial process heating and air conditioning. In the recently adopted Serbian standard SRPS EN ISO 9488, Solar energy - Vocabulary, terms and definitions deal with this area of solar radiation measurement and solar energy use technology.
Since the previous version, published internationally in 1999, there have been significant changes caused by the development of solar photovoltaic technologies and solar thermal technologies.
The previous version of the Serbian standard, which was replaced by SRPS EN ISO 9488:2023, was adopted ten years ago. In October last year, a new version of this standard was adopted in English, French and German. The latest edition of the Serbian standard, published in March of this year, is bilingual, in Serbian and English. SRPS EN ISO 9488 is within the scope of work of ISS NTC KS M180, Solar Energy.
