Green district heating based on solar and biomass

A 3,458 m2 solar heating system is the latest step on the road towards a greener district heating supply for Egedal Fjernvarme A / S. In recent years, the district heating plant has continuously developed its operations to achieve a more sustainable heat production. In addition to a solar heating system, this green trasition has also included the expansion of the surrounding district heating network as well as the conversion of the individually supplied homes from oil and gas to green district heating made on solar and biomass.

Customized solution

The solar field consists of 34 rows of highly efficient double-glazed flat solar-thermal collectors with up to 10 collectors per row. With a capacity of 2.6 MWth, the plant is capable of producing 1,850 MWh heat per year. Combined with the district heating plant's existing biomass boiler and an accumulation tank with a capacity of 2,400 m3, the solar heating plant will provide sustainable heating to 875 customers in Stenløse and Ølstykke.
