Stirling Engine, Solar & Efficient Heat for Eco-village in Hjortshøj (2009)

Submitted by Raquel Ponte Costa on April 13, 2010

Mr Gunnar Boye Olesen from INFORSE-Europe made this presentation during the INFORSE-Europe European Sustainable Energy NGO Seminar Artefact held in Germany in November 2009.

This short document explains the concept of the eco-village "Andelssamfundet i Hjortshøj", near Århus, Denmark, created in 1991, where solar heating systems were installed.

Until 2002 the heating was provided by a wood pellet boiler, but in 2002 it was decided to increase the heating station with a wood-chip boiler and a stirling engine for combined heat and power production.
