New solar district heating plant in Büsingen, Germany

Büsingen will be the ninth ‘Bioenergiedorf’ (bioenergy village) in Baden-Würtemberg, with a new district heating net, fed by a biomass and solar thermal plant.

Büsingen is a very particular German village since it is geographically located on the territory of Switzerland. Solarcomplex AG, a regional energy supplier based in the south German city Singen, is currently building a 5 km long district heating net to provide heat to approximately 100 houses and buildings in Büsingen. The company is specialized in district heating nets fed by renewable energies, until now mostly biogas, and is building here its first biomass plant in combination with a solar heating plant. 

The Steinbeis Research Institute for Solar and Sustainable Thermal Energy Systems Solites was therefore consulted about the solar heat plant and its dimensioning. The 1000 m² collectors will be mainly ground-mounted near the biomass plant and will cover approximately 11% of the yearly heat demand in Büsingen. This new solar district heating net should start delivering heat to the customers before the end of the year 2012.
