The programs of Solar Heating and cooling (SHC) as well as District Heating and Cooling (DHC) belong
to the 5 main technology collaboration programmes (TCP) of the IEA (International Energy Agency).
SHC was among the first programmes of the IEA established in 1977. Its goal is to promote the use of all
aspects of solar thermal energy.

Solar District Heating: Inspiration and Experiences from Denmark
Solar District Heating: Inspiration and Experiences from Denmark
August 2017 - PDF 1.82MB
By: Danish District Heating Association / PlanEnergi
Publisher: IEA SHC TASK 55
This document brings together some of the most important experiences from the inspiring development of solar district heating systems that have been seen in Denmark in the past years. The document is an adapted translations of “Solvarme – Inspirationskatalog” from February 2017, elaborated by PlanEnergi for the Danish District Heating Association. Some of the conditions and regulations described might be specific Danish. The main objective of this document is to inspire and qualify the district heating companies (board members as well as operating personnel) as well as representatives from municipalities with respect to the specific processes in the project development phases. This is not a proper guidance in the establishment of solar installations. More specific guidance can be found in IEA SHC Task 45 and Task 55 guidelines and fact sheets and in the Europeran SDH projects – see last section in the document. This document thus complements these guidelines with specific Danish experience. After summing up to the various protagonists follow descriptions of six specific Danish solar district heating plants – and some experiences gained here.
