Heat production and distribution

The heating systems of the northern and southern tracts differ. The 29 single family houses in the northern tract each have their own solar-assisted gas-fired condensing boiler for space heating and hot water. Solar collectors cover up to 65 per cent of the energy demand for DHW production.

The 48 single family houses in the southern tract have a micro-district heating system per house row. Solar heat and electricity produced on the house roof tops are also centrally collected and distributed. Solar energy also covers 65 per cent of the DHW need. These central units are managed by the local utility.
