Classification and Benchmarking of Solar Thermal Systems in Urban Environments
Technical Report Subtask C – Part C1

By: Franz Mauthner, Sebastian Herkel
In the present report [Deliverable C1: Classification and benchmarking of solar thermal systems in urban environments], solar thermal system configurations suitable for applications in urban environments are identified first (chapter 4) and characterized by representative techno-economic benchmark figures from a set of best practice examples (chapter 5). Objective of this report is to provide a comprehensive data base for techno-economic (pre-) evaluations regarding the role of solar thermal in urban energy systems, especially applicable for urban planners / energy system planners without deeper theoretical solar thermal expertise.

A detailed analysis for the Austrian, Danish, German and Italian situation was done looking for different scenarios for the year 2050. For different shares of district heating and installed photovoltaic capacity potentials for solar heat were calculated using the techno-economic model EnergyPLAN. The results show that the overall share has a potential of 5-8% of the total heat demand.

A framework for energy system analysis was set up using different modelling approaches. A detailed analysis for the German situation was done looking for different scenarios for the year 2050. For different shares of district heating and installed photovoltaic capacity potentials for solar heat were calculated using the techno-economic model ReMod-D. First results show that for more or less similar costs for the over-all energy system, solar thermal might play a role when the installed PV-capacity is lower than 200 GW.

This Task focuses on the analysis of the future role of solar thermal in energy supply systems in urban environments. Based on an energy economic analysis - reflecting future changes in the whole energy system - strategies and technical solutions as well as associated tools will be developed. Good examples of integration of solar thermal systems in urban energy systems will be developed and documented.
