Title: Frost protection with solar energy
The tennis clubhouse in St. Ulrich bei Steyr, Austria, employs a solar unit combined with a screed concrete floor containing heating coils in order to counter the problem of frost. The project, slated for October 2009, will reduce CO2 emissions by 2.65 tons per season and avoid repair costs due to frost damage.
