District heating replaces gas with sun

Date: 23 October 2015

There are now 86 solar heating  heating plants in use in Denmark, and 33 more are on the way. In 2015, solar has grown by 64 percent compared to 2014.

Overall, these are investments of about 1.5 billion DKK up until today. And further 1.4 billion in planned investments.

The explosive development is a positive surprise for Brian Vad Mathiesen, a professor in energy planning at Aalborg University: “It takes a lot of sun into the district heating system for the fossil-free energy to stick together, so it’s really nice that the development goes so fast and that solar is apparently also is starting to restrict the use of biomass at the CHP plants”.
