Ranking List of European Large Scale Solar Heating Plants

This section presents a ranking list of large scale solar heating plants located in Europe and with a nominal capacity higher than 700 kWth. This data base allows you to learn from best practice realizations, to find detailed technical information and cost data or to get in contact with the plant operators. Use the filter tool to easily select plants corresponding to the desired size, location or category. Benefit from this well introduced platform for presenting your own plant.

The ranking list of large scale solar heating plants is managed by Jan-Olof Dalenbäck, Chalmers University Gothenborg, SE. The list was developed in cooperation with partners of the European Large-scale Solar Heating Network, Working Group 2E of the European Solar Thermal Technology Platform and the IEE Solar District Heating in Europe project.
