BioSolFer – Integration of solar thermal into biomass district heating networks

Solar assisted district heating networks are booming in Denmark and are also progressing in Austria, Germany and Sweden. With these large solar thermal systems, low heat production cost below 5 Rp/kWh are reached. In this project, SPF supports district heating operators to find possibilities for the integration of solar heat in their network and analyses how large solar thermal installations can be optimally integrated in biomass heating networks in the Swiss context.
