Graz is making constant efforts to increase the share of renewable energy in the city’s district heating system. So the project ‘HELIOS’ in Graz with its 2 000 m² solar plant has been put into operation in September 2017. The thermal energy is fed into the district heating grid of Graz.

Three installed systems and one more planned: SDH shows a few examples of operation in Italy but quite good perspectives thanks to relevant incentives and the recent inclusion in the National Energy Strategy for 2030. A workshop in Venice on 15 December 2017 will analyze the status quo and the possible developments.

Starting in 2017, SOLID and the public utility of Mürzzuschlag developed a concept for a large-scale solar thermal plant. The new large-scale solar thermal plant on the northern outskirts of Mürzzuschlag will be built over the next 12 months and cover around 10% of the annual heat demand.

An initiative aiming at the realization of at least one new solar district heating plant in the Swedish region of Västra Götaland in 2017-2018 is ongoing within the European project SDHp2m – policy to market. Here are the latest developments.

'Why is there no solar district heating in Switzerland?' Swiss scientists were asking after their visit to Denmark. Now, the Swiss-based SPF – Institute of Solar Technology has begun to work with a district heating company on giving the country its first pilot plant.

Usually, solar district heating (SDH) plants require large fields for collector installations, which has raised concerns at local level because of competing land uses and a system’s potential visual impact on the surroundings. One way out of this dilemma is to combine heat generation and fruit and vegetable harvest.
