Title: Solar energy concept for district heating in Graz
In cooperation with the city of Graz, SOLID developed an energy concept that is a good example of the use of solar energy. In the summer months, the use of gas for district heating is to be restricted. On a total area of 24,200 m², solar plants will enable direct feeding of solar energy into the Graz district heating network. The project includes implemented projects, projects under construction, and others that are in planning. The stepwise implementation and further development of the project will enable the replacement of the gas furnaces in a few years and help to meet the Kyoto limits through annual savings in CO2 emissions of 1247 tons.
