The plant covers an area of 11,312 square metres and is the fifth solar thermal system constructed by Aalborg CSP in Denmark so far. It has, so far, exceeded expectations in tests and consists of flat panels that can jointly produce 5,568 MWh heat annually, contributing to 2,583 consumers’ heat and hot water demands.
Denmark has ambitious targets to become fossil fuel free by 2050. As part of this initiative, most district heating and combined heat and power (CHP) plants typically switch to alternative energy sources, such as solar or biomass.
