Overview
09/12/2014
good news: solar district heating extends to new European countries after a long period, in which solar district heating mainly seemed to be a Scandinavian, Austrian and German affair! During the international SDH workshop held in Milan in November, the recently constructed plant for the Ecodistrict Balma near Toulouse was presented as well as the first plant in Italy, in the city of Varese, which is planned for 2015. Further plants in France, Poland and even South Korea are just around the corner. A perfect occasion for receiving more information about these new activities will be our next SDH conference held on 17-18 June 2015 in Toulouse, France. So save the date now!
With our newsletter we would like to invite you to our upcoming events and inform you about further recent sector developments and project results. We hope to awake your interest in our activities. Don't hesitate to get in touch with us for any further information.

Season’s Greetings!

With about 40 participants, the 25th November workshop in Milano showed how important is the role of energy urban planning for sustainable cities. Engineers, planners and consultants from industries, research centres and local administrations had the chance to see that solar district heating has a long successful history in northern Europe and it is now moving towards south.
