District heating based on local renewable energy sources is becoming more and more an appealing solution for small communities in search of energy independence and of a stable price for their thermal energy supply. Such solutions often foresee a strong and direct involvement of the customers who could even own, at the same time, their heating grid by constituting a cooperative company to run the business.
Right on time for the opening of the 4th International Solar District Heating Conference in Billund, the host country Denmark reached a magical barrier: more than one Million square meters solar collectors are now installed there. The Danish District Heating Association counted exactly 1 003 024 square meters at the beginning of the Conference on Wednesday, 21st September, in a total of 85 district heating networks supported by solar thermal energy.
Save the date! The 5th International Solar District Heating Conference will take place on 11 and 12 April 2018 in Graz, Austria.
