Solar District Heating and Cooling
Review article, 2013

Large-scale solar heating is on the way to become an interesting option in district heating in Europe. There is now a strong market development in Denmark and the number of large-scale plants has increased by more than 50%, from about 120 in 2007 to 195 plants in 2013. The majority of new large-scale plants are installed in block and district heating systems, but there are also a number of new solar cooling plants. The author presents the status of large-scale solar heating applications based on a article in EuroHeat&Power in 2007 [1].
