About this blog

I finished my Ph.D. in engineering in 2000, within the topic of Central Solar Heating. Such systems can involve Seasonal Heat Storage which is a second field of competence. After finishing the study, I was almost 2 years, involved in further developments of these technologies. Due to lack of funding, I had to find another subject, ending up in knowledge management and IT.

The resent years, I did not follow up on my subject of expertise. Now I feel, that it is time to do something about it. Therefore I will, in this blog, take a first step in collecting a status on my research topic that I had to move away from.

A blog is not the perfect way to collect knowledge. However, it is a start. So here we go.

The aim for this blog is to collect information on Central Solar Heating and Seasonal Heat Storage in a single space, giving anybody a fast insight into the field and pointing to relevant resources.

As you will see, my English is not the best, but I believe that I do better doing something, than nothing at all. Please feel free to send me an e-mail or place a comment within the blog, if you would like to improve the text, give some hints, tips, links or comments.

    Hej Alfred
    Er du faldet over en opdateret liste over store anlæg (på EU/globalt plan)?
    Godt nytår

    Hi Alfred,

    I am currently studying for a Masters in Renewable Energy Systems in Ireland and I find your website very helpful. At the moment I am doing a case study on Ærøskøbing in Denmark however I am finding it difficult to find information on the straw fired boiler and the wood pellet boiler that is bing used. I wish to study the feasibility of such a system in Ireland.
    Could you guide me to where i could find more information….preferably in English.

    Thank you in advance for your help,

    Brian Fox

  4. Dear Brian

    You simply contact the people at the plant, Jan Ivert Kristensen. They are in general very helpful. An alternative would be to contact the consultant that where in charge to design the plant. Here you can Planernergi.

    Plant owner web site: http://www.aeroe-varme.dk/
    Planenergi Nord web site: http://www.planenergi.dk/default.asp?reload=true

    Let us know about your work. If you need further help, please feel free to do so.

    Hi Alfred,
    Initially a big thanks for your effort to provide people with knowledge of central solar heating.I am an electrical engineer from Greece.
    I want to ask some questions as regards central solar heating.
    I want to orientate my career as a central solar heating planner/designer.
    Do you believe that it can provide my livings or to leave it?
    Additionally,how and where in Danemark (or Europe) can I learn how to plan large-scale solar thermal systems?
    Thanks in advance for your reply.

    • Dear Lasdas

      Sorry for the unacceptable late reply. I assumed to get a mail every time there is a comment. However I did not see this one… sorry. Do you still work on reflections on central solar heating? Are you planing to work with district heating or block heating plants? (are there district heating systems existing?). What is your professional background? Regards, Alfred
