Bishkek City HallIn September, the then deputy PM of Kyrgyzstan, Duishenbek Zilaliev, attended the inauguration of a 0.5 MW solar district heating plant in the capital Bishkek. The press release on the event – published by the media and communications department of Bishkek’s city hall on 22 September – also mentioned the operator of the solar field, the Bishkekteploenergo municipal utility, the largest thermal energy provider in the city. The national Environmental Protection Fund supported the project financially by offering a grant of Kyrgyzstani Som (KGS) 10.6 million – 72 % of the total investment costs of KGS 14.8 million (around USD 212,000).

Simulation Study of Solar Thermal Systems Consisting of Uncovered Collectors and/or an Air-to-Water Heat Exchanger (2006)

Submitted by Hans Craen on October 30, 2009

This research paper from 2006 looks into a simulation exercise of solar thermal systems consisting of uncovered solar collectors and/or air-to-water heat exchangers. The aim is to optimise their functioning and to compare the performances. This simulation has been carried out for the district heating net in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.

The simulation of this so-called multicomponent solar thermal system looks into a method to preheat cold water by using solar irradiance as well as heat of the ambient air.
