New Italian technical handbook on solar district heating
The first Italian handbook entirely on SDH was released in July. The handbook summarizes the technical knowledge on solar district heating, collected thanks to the SDHtake-off and SDHplus projects.

 

The book covers all the key topics in the project development of a SDH plant: first feasibility assessment, detailed design of the main system components, hydraulics, seasonal heat storages, operation and maintenance, yield assessment, economic and financial calculation, as well as built examples of operating systems all over the world. The handbook was written by Riccardo Battisti, from the company Ambiente Italia, one of the SDHplus project partners. Contributions to the book also came from Franco Buscaroli and Marco Calderoni, representing the Italian District Heating Association and the University Politecnico of Milan.
