The Vester Nebel project began in 1983. Its objective was to demonstrate the possibilities of installing a collective heat supply based on different types of local renewable energy sources and designed to serve small communities. This report gives a description of the plant and its operation, the results of the measurements and the experience obtained during the operation of the plant. The plant comprised several heat production units : solar collector, heat pump, straw furnace, oil-fired furnace and wind turbines. The solar collector operated independently from the other units. The heat pumps went into operation when the output from the solar collector was insufficient to meet demand. The straw furnace was thereafter in operation. The oil-fired furnace was used as a peak-load unit. The results of the operation during the last twelve months were used as a basis for evaluating the economic viability of the project.
