Brædstrup solar park is the first step of a total project of 50,000 m2 of solar collectors and a solar fraction of 50 % of the district heating demand in Brædstrup. The project is supported by the ForskEL-programme by Energinet.dk, EUDP and a business development program by the Region of Central Jutland. PlanEnergi has assisted Brædstrup District Heating as consultant, from the first 8,000 m2 of solar thermal and to the latest expansion, consisting of:
- 10,600 m2 solar thermal collectors
- 8,000 m3 borehole thermal energy storage
- 0.3 MW (cooling) heat pump
- 5,000 m3 steel tank (water)
The expansion was commissioned in the summer of 2012.
