Participation in the IEA SHC Task 68 on “Efficient Solar District Heating Systems”

    Project Details


    The project deals with participation in the IEA SHC Task on ‘Efficient Solar District Heating Systems’. The Technical University of Denmark, PlanEnergi, Aalborg CSP A/S and Heliac ApS will jointly carry out re-search activities and contribute to the task with development of simulation models and efficient sys-tems/components for solar district heating (SDH). The main project objectives are:
    • to provide the heat most efficiently at the desired temperature level either directly by solar or indi-rectly by solar by combining solar collectors with other technologies
    • to take a next step regarding digitalization measures allowing a more efficient data preparation and utilization
    • to make SDH more competitive and business appealing by exploring new business models and ways to reduce costs
    • to raise awareness for solar technologies and disseminate the knowledge regarding SDH sys-tems, especially for medium-high temperature heat by collecting and providing best practice ex-amples, data and insights from real installations.
    The project will promote the integration of Danish companies in the world development of new solar heat-ing market and help to secure Denmark’s front position in SDH systems.
