Global renewable energy and environmental neighbourhoods as solar cities


In the proposed CONCERTO project in Valby. 200 kWp PV is integrated to match electricity use for ventilation in 600 housing units, and solar thermal collectors are combined with water savings to obtain 40-50% solar for DHW for 333 retrofit housing units and 50% for 70 passive house rooftop apartments, while 200 new built apartments will get 31% solar DHW. Besides is used an innovative and cost effective biomass gasification CHP plant using wood pellets.

In Salzburg they are also like Copenhagen already a kind of solar city. Their plan is in the Concerto II project to demonstrate how you can expand the use of solar heating to a higher level of the total need for heating and DHW, e.g. from 15% today to up to 45% in the best new apartment building schemes. This is done by combining with a gasified heat pump. At the same time they use district heating which is at least 50% based on biomass for the rest of the heating supply.
