Solar district heating systems in Denmark

Solar district heating systems in Denmark

Large scale district heating network

In 2007, the first solar heating plant was made in combination with natural gas-fired cogeneration plant (CHP) in Brædstrup. Solar heat can combine with other technologies in systems that interact with the electricity grid. Heat pumps are now being introduced in district heating to combine heat and electricity generation. In Denmark, large district heating systems are now operated via coupling of different technologies.
