Title: Solar-heated park bench

For the town of Werfenweng, the technical secondary school in Salzburg implemented a solar-heated park bench, which is part of the town’s solar park and an enhancement for winter tourism. Each park bench will be equipped with a solar awning that converts solar irradiation into electrical energy. This energy is stored and fed on demand to a heating element in the seat. The environmentally friendly annual harvest is 320 kWh. An additional benefit is that users will be alerted to solar energy. The solar bench will be presented to the town in the fall.
