Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on February 23, 2010

Currently there are around 120 large scale solar heating plants with more than 500 m2 of solar collectors in operation in Europe, 10 of which are located in Denmark.

The first Danish plant was built in 1987 with 1,000 m2 of ground mounted collectors. Today it still remains active, producing heating for the citizens. The Danish government has set very high targets for district heating in the upcoming years. In the “Strategy for solar thermal”, the Danish Energy Agency has set an ambitious target of 10% of district heating load to be covered by solar thermal in 2030.
