Register now for the 5th International Solar District Heating Conference!
Registration is now open for the next International Solar District Heating Conference on 11 and 12 April 2017 in Graz, Austria. Here is why you should not miss this key event and register now.

The International Solar District Heating Conference is an established venue in the world of solar and renewable district heating. With more participants at each edition it is now a unique opportunity for networking, gathers all experts and newcomers in the field and represents a great exchange opportunity at international level. In the exhibition area, it will be possible to meet with professionals of the sector and learn more about their products and services. This edition will additionally offer a new service of match-making in order to facilitate networking activities.

The program is based on more than 80 submitted contributions and will include the presentation of a wide range of solar district heating plants in different stages of development: new plants and system concepts but also feedback on operation experience and monitoring results. Moreover, some sessions will be dedicated to market development and policy and several countries and regions will present their activities and share their vision and experience.



One of the highlights of these two days will be the technical tours, since the City of Graz and the Region Steiermark, pioneers and frontrunners in integrating solar thermal in its district heating networks, offer perfect opportunities:

- The brand new plant of 2000 m² owned and operated by Energie Graz coupled with a multifunction heat storage within the Helios project which connects innovative and sustainable energy generation with modern storage technology and optimized district heating.

- Austria’s largest solar district heating plant operated by SOLID, also feeding into Graz’ district heating system, where several large-scale solar thermal collectors are being compared.

- One of the local examples of 100% renewable energy villages combining biomass and solar district heating, to discover the advantages of combining both energy sources.
