Through a research and development support of 11.9 mio. DDK, the Danish government pushes for CSHP with seasonal storage. In charge for the project is Planenergi, the most active consulting company in the business together with the plant owner, Dronningelund District Heating. The overall concept will be to use solar heating in combination with a large scale thermal storage and a heat pump. The collector area is planned to be approx. 35,000 square metres, a storage volume of 60,000 m3 and a heat pump with 3 MW effect.
The seasonal storage is planned as a pit water storage with floating lid, a well-known solution applied in the past.
The overall budget for the project is 80 mio. DDK or approx. 10.1 mio. Euros.
