Focus on solar district heating

18. January 2018


The state of Styria is committed to expanding and converting district heating to renewable energy sources, and along with the “BIG SOLAR Graz” project it has already established a name for itself in the international district heating sector. Following many past international venues, this year, the independent research institute AEE INTEC has succeeded in bringing the “Solar District Heating Conference” to Graz from 11 to 12 April. Some 200 international experts in district heating and solar energy from more than 20 countries are expected to meet to discuss topics such as solar heating networks in urban areas, repowering of biomass heating plants with solar thermal energy and the latest advances in technology concepts and components.


5th International Solar District Heating Conference


The fifth edition of the International Solar District Heating Conference will take place on 11th and 12th April 2018 in Graz, Austria. It focuses on sharing market development and policy making experience, recent projects as well as latest trends in technology and system concepts. This established venue represents every time a great exchange opportunity between experienced and interested market actors, policy makers and researchers from all over Europe. The city of Graz, a pioneer and frontrunner in integrating solar thermal in its district heating network, is a particularly appropriate location to host the International Solar District Heating Conference and will offer perfect opportunities for technical tours within the event program.
