This is a presentation made by Jan Olof DalenbÃ¤ck, Professor at Chalmers University of Technology, during the International Solar District Heating Workshop that took place in Graz, Austria, in March 2011.
The presentation provides a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of solar heating in Europe. The main threat is the lack of incentives and knowledge from decision makers and consumers about this technology.
The document includes an overview of the solar heating and cooling plants existing in Europe in 2009. It also explain some of the technology used in concrete examples of plants in Denmark, Sweden, Austria and Germany.
