This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 691624
The plant in Büsingen is the first solar district heating plant with a ground-mounted collector field in Germany: Indeed, if 100 m² of the Ritter XL vacuum-tube collectors could be installed on the central biomass heat station, the further 1000 m² found their place as two 500 m² fields north and south of the heat station. Thanks to the combination of this solar thermal plant and the biomass boiler, the new district heating net delivers 100% renewable heat to 100 buildings. Solar heat will cover 11 % of the total yearly heat demand.
Save the date! The 5th International Solar District Heating Conference will take place on 11 and 12 April 2018 in Graz, Austria.
