Integrating Large SHC Systems into DHC Networks

Towards the Integration of Large SHC Systems into District Heating and Cooling (DHC) Networks

 

The SHC Task 55 aims to identify technical and economic requirements for a commercial market introduction of solar district heating and cooling (DHC) in a broad range of countries. More information can be found in the Task description.

Danish SDH market reaches new milestone: 11 infographics describing SDH technology and markets for download

Danish SDN Achievements

Denmark has consolidated its lead in the global solar district heating market, as capacity topped 1 GWth in August 2019. The 120 solar district heating plants that are now in operation throughout the country total 1.1 GWth (around 1.6 million m²).

The above shown chart is one of eleven infographics that were developed within Task 55 to illustrate SDH technologies, advantages and market developments. The files are available as jpgs and pdfs for download in three languages – English, German and French - and can be used free-of-charge in third-party publications. The creation and design of the infocharts was sponsored as part of a planned SDH investor brochure “Solar Heat For Cities” by the following Task 55 members: Solites (Germany), European Copper Institute (Belgium), Sunrain (China), CSP Aalborg (Denmark), newHeat (France), Savosolar (Finland) and Greenonetec (Austria).

COLLABORATION

This is collaborative work with IEA DHC

What's New
  • Success factors in top SDH countries - In the last decade, Denmark, China, Germany and Austria played a leading role in the deployment of large solar thermal systems around the world. What country-specific factors helped these four achieve that level of market adoption and how support schemes and business models contributed to success has been the topic of a new review paper written by an international group of experts.
