Brewing Beer with Solar Heat (2010)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on August 10, 2012

This report gives case studies of two Germany beer breweries - the Hofmühl brewery in Eichstätt and the Hüth Brewiry in Kassel-Baunatal - that have integrated solar thermal energy into their production process. Although there is high potential for solar process heat to be used in industrial applications, the necessary technology remains relatively expensive when operating temperatures exceed 100°C, meaning that its penetration remains low.
