  • Solar district heating potential of small towns in Europe

    Solar district heating potential of small towns in Europe

    Most small European towns connected to a district heating network have enough land available for a solar field to meet 20 % of heat demand. In all, 93 % of the identified solar heat potential can be produced at a price of less than 50 EUR/MWh. These are the key findings from a study by...
