Twenty solar collectors connected to Bävergläntan’s wood-chip fired furnace, which provides heat and electricity to both the property and other industrial businesses A few years ago, the oil was replaced by a woodchip fired furnace. Now the wood-fired heating is supplemented with solar energy, primarily during the summer when the furnace is expensive to keep running. The purchaser for the system is Bävergläntans Fastighets in Smedjebacken, in Dalarna province, in Sweden.

Sweden’s first solar power plant for heat and electricity at Härnösand has been connected to the local district heating network. The plant has 20 solar collectors that generate heat for the district heating network and electricity for the electric power grid directly from the sun. The purchaser is the district energy company, Hemab, which can now offer their customers energy-friendly energy. A field with a 200 m 2 Absolicon X10 PVT system was installed next to the headquarters of the energy company. The installation is installed on the ground.
A field of 40 solar collectors provides Stödehuset outside of Sundsvall with heat and electricity. The installation heats the water for both the indoor and outdoor pools. The purchaser is the district energy company Sundsvall Energy, and the installation replaces a large part of the facility’s oil consumption. By using solar energy, Stödebadet hopes to offer warmer pools and expanded business hours. The customer received solar power subsidies for the installation.
Extended-Range Heat Transfer Fluid with Variable Composition for More Efficient Use of Solar Power in Steam Driven Power PlantsType:Product
Solar power is a renewable energy resource that has generated a lot of interest as an alternative to fossil fuels. Unfortunately solar photovoltaic panels historically have been proven inefficient in converting sunlight into electrical energy. Recently interest has grown in generating solar power for use in steam driven power plants. This process involves collecting heat from the sun using thermal panels and using the heat to warm a fluid that is used to produce high-pressure superheated steam. The steam then can be used to power turbines in power plants.
