A methodology to integrate solar thermal energy in district heating networks confronted with a Swedish real case study
Conference contribution, 2017

Among other solutions, the integration of solar energy in district heating networks can contribute significantly to the increase of the renewable energy fraction in an urban area. This article describes the methodology developed in the framework of IEA Task District heating networks are commonly addressed in the literature as one of the most effective solutions for decreasing the 52 to help stakeholders during early phases of new or refurbishments projects. This methodology integrates a tool which is capable the renewable energy fraction in an urban area. This article describes the methodology developed in the framework of IEA Task greenhouse gas emissions from the building sector. These systems require high investments which are returned through the heat to assess the main solar indicators of the project with only two inputs: the solar installation area and the building heated area. The 52 to help stakeholders during early phases sales. Due to the changed climate conditions and building renovation policies, heat demand in the future could decrease, f new or refurbishments projects. This methodology integrates a tool which is capabl too al outputs are compared to the measured values of a Swedish case study. prolonging the investment return period. ssess the main solar indicators of the project with only two inputs: the solar installation area and the building heated area. The tool outputs are compared to the measured values of a Swedish case study.
