Installation Overview

About 4 000 people have been trained in more than 150 training courses in the six partner countries since the beginning of the SOLTRAIN programme.

In order to apply the knowledge gained during the training courses, 326 demonstration systems have been installed in so called “Solar Thermal Flagship Districts” to show and demonstrate the different solar thermal applications.

The total collector area of these systems is 5 532 m² corresponding to an installed capacity of 3.8 MWth.

The size of these demonstration systems ranges from small systems with a 2 m² collector area and a 150-litre hot water tank for single family houses in social housing areas and medium-scale systems for hospitals, social institutions and the accommodation sector to large-scale systems with almost 600 m² collector area and 60 000 litre storage tanks for industrial applications and district heating.
