“ENhancing renewable heaT planning for improving the aiR quAlity of commuNities”
Economic calculations, financing and funding for RES district heating have been the topics of the second training inside the ENTRAIN partnership on June 18th.
Thanks a lot to our AT and DE partners for this precious knowledge transfer and to external guests who joined our online meeting!
Guess where close to half of all Germany solar district heating plants are located? ...in Baden-Wuerttemberg, enclosing one of ENTRAIN target regions! SDH is increasingly recognized as a mature technology: high investment costs can be balanced through state incentives.
We analized three Croatian counties for estimating the potential of RES in DH networks. By combining forestry+short rotation crops, biomass could cover 1/3 of the overall demand in the area.
...and what about those sun-bathed roofs?
Near the edge of this suggestive scenario, we met with experts on wood energy and we learnt how to mobilize interest. Our Austrian and German partners inspired us with examples and suggestions on renewable district heating... one Brezel at a time!
Find here the project main outputs:
the first step is "preparing the local ground", with an initial survey of the target areas, guidelines for the evaluation of renewable heat potential and the actual evaluation for the 5 target regions!
