|| This first webinar, of the IEA SHC Solar Academy's 2019 webinar series, will share the latest results of IEA SHC Task 55 on Large Scale SHC Systems Integration into District Heating and Cooling Networks.
Solar District Heating (SDH) is in the early market development stage. Large solar thermal plants feeding into district heating networks represent only about 1% of the installed capacity of solar thermal systems, despite the fact that competitive prices lower than 40 €/MWh can be reached. In the long run, solar district heating could represent 4-15% of the total technical potential of solar thermal energy.
The aim of this IEA SHC work is to develop technical and economic requirements for the commercial market introduction of solar district heating and cooling (DHC) for a broad range of countries. The activities aim to improve technological know-how, market know-how and understanding of the boundary conditions as well as to provide expert know-how for project initiation and implementation and for training. A key element will be the direct cooperation of SDH experts with associations and companies in the district heating sector as a means to bridge the gap between these sectors.
The 90-minute webinar will include a 30 minutes Q/A session where attendees can submit their questions to the speakers.
The recording of the webinar as well as the presentations by the speakers will be available after the webinar on both the IEA SHC and ISES websites.
