Norway: Solar Collectors Support District Heating

Submitted by Baerbel Epp on February 11, 2013

In November 2012, the Norwegian power supplier Akershus Energi celebrated the inauguration of its new 13,000 m² solar district heating plant in the town of Lillestrøm close to Oslo. Built by Danish company Sunmark, it is the largest solar thermal plant in Norway to date. The plant is to deliver 20 to 30 % of the heat required by the district heating network during the summer time. All year round, it is to produce 4.2 GWh of solar heat (323 kWh/m² of collector area), which equals little more than 3 % of the network’s total heat supply.
