Webinar: Think Big – Design Rules and Monitoring Results of Solar District Heating Systems

SmartreflexIn cooperation with EU project SmartReFlex, will soon hold the webinar Think big – Design rules and monitoring results of solar district heating systems. We invite every stakeholder to join the event scheduled online for 1.5 hours on Tuesday, 6 December 2016, from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Central European Time (time zone includes Berlin, Brussels, and Copenhagen). The webinar will be free of charge and will be open to anyone interested in the topic. You can register for it online.

Primarily thanks to a strong commitment and effective development policies in central and northern European countries, solar district heating (SDH) is becoming one of the most promising fields for solar heat application. And the technology’s low specific investment cost achievable by economies of scale will further boost opportunities for growth.
During the webinar, experts from Austria, Denmark and Germany will report on the hot topics in SDH development: Use and performance of seasonal heat storage units for increasing solar coverage, distributed SDH plants connected to specific points of district heating grids as well as large centralised SDH plants employed in particular in Denmark and combined with other renewable energy sources.

A recording of the webinar will be available on twenty-four hours after the live stream.
The SmartReFlex project, which involves six implementing regions in four European countries, produces guidelines for regional authorities, training materials, case studies and recommendations for setting up a task force on renewable energy sources in district heating. The project is being co-funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme of the European Union. For more information, please go to
