L’équipe du projet européen Solar District Heating vient de publier sa Newsletter de février 2013 que vous trouverez ci-après.
- Register now! First Solar District Heating Conference
Online registration is now open for the conference ‘Solar District Heating – Technical Solutions, Urban Planning and Business Models’ that will take place in Malmö, Sweden on 9-10 April 2013.
- Eibiswald district heating doubles its roof-top solar thermal plant to 2 450 m²
In 1997 Eibiswald District Heating installed its first solar district heating plant of 1 250 m² collector area. As the district heating network of the village in South Western Styria, Austria, doubled its size in recent years, the collector area was enlarged by another 1 200 m² by end of 2012.
- Large Scale Aluminium Solar Field approved for Løgumkloster District Heating, DK
EUDP (Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Programme) under the Danish Energy Agency has approved a project that will help establish aluminium as a material of choice for thermal solar installations, including large area collectors for district heating.
- Norway’s largest solar district heating plant inaugurated
On November 15th 2012, Akershus Energy AS launched a 12 810 m² solar thermal plant integrated to a district heating net in the town of Lillestrøm, Norway.
- Italy: new subsidy scheme for solar thermal up to 1000 m²
Large solar thermal plants will receive an incentive of 55 €/m² per year, over a period of 5 years. It could be a good opportunity for solar district heating also.
- SAED solar thermal collectors will provide heat for a district heating net in the south of France
The building phase of the solar districtheating of Juvignac in southern France will start in a few weeks. Cofely Services, subsidiary of GDF SUEZ in charge of the project selected SAED (Sophia Antipolis Energie Développement) to provide the solar thermal collectors.
- Germany: Solar energy in district heating networks now stronger promoted
In Germany big solar thermal plants with at least 40 m² feeding in a district heating network are now particularly promoted. The operators receive up to 40 % of the investment costs as subsidy to amortisation from the German government owned development bank KfW, while the subsidy for stand-alone operated collectors stays by 30 %.
- Solar bunker in Hamburg
The transformation of a bunker from the world war into a heating central with 1 350 m² solar thermal collectors feeding in a district heating net is now under way.
- World largest solar thermal plant in Chile
As of summer 2013, 39 300 m² solar collectors will cover more than 80% of the heat demand of a copper mine in the desert in northern Chile.
