Solar thermal and long term heat storage for district heating systems


The project aim to demonstrate:
-how 30% of the demand for heat in a district heating system may be covered by solar heat with the same profitability which has so far been covered by 10-20%. In doing so, the European market for large scale plants will be doubled.
-a long term (pit heat) storage which would be constructed for half the costs of steel tanks. The storage might be used as a seasonal heat storage which would further increase the solar fraction.
-a solar collector field constituting at least three types of the most efficient solar collectors for solar heat centrals in Northern Europe.
-integration of solar heating in a conventional district heating system. Solar fraction 30%. Price of energy 0.045 EUR/kWh.
