SOLID strengthens its position on the German Solar Energy Market
Millions of square meter solar collector areas have been installed in Germany, turning it into one of Europe´s biggest solar thermal markets. SOLID now extends its position on the German solar thermal energy market with a well-known character – Detlev Seidler, who has a lot of experience in the German solar market.
Ambassador Mr. Soo in Graz
On Nov. 12th, the ambassador of Singapore, Mr. Soo Kok Leng, paid a visit to Graz visiting a few companies and research entities including SOLID.
SOLID’s CEO Christian Holter and the ambassador had intensive discussions about the expected future development of energy markets and what Solar Thermal technology can contribute for covering Heating Demand in industry and Cooling Demand in Air Conditioning systems.
As Singapore is a nation where space or available land area is a precious resource, the fact that Solar Thermal harvest per m² is by far higher than with other Solar technologies has been of special interest in the discussion.
SOLID won a world-known ENERGY GLOBE Award - Again!
SOLID won the Jamaican Energy Globe Award 2014. After an Energy Globe Award 2005 and 2006, the award now, 2014, underlines SOLID´s strong, constant international performance. With the construction of the first solar thermal cooling system at the headquarters of the mobile operator Digicel in the capital of Jamaica, SOLID has implemented the first highly innovative, economic and environmental solar thermal project in a developing Caribbean country.
Austria’s largest Solar District Heating plant is actually enlarged from 5000 m² to 7000 m². The new collector area serves as a field test for 4 different Large Scale Solar Thermal Collectors from 3 different manufacturers.
The Large scale Solar Thermal plant at the district heating plant in Graz is actually enlarged by SOLID by another 2000 m² collector area. The harvested energy will be used to 100% in the city’s district heating grid and satisfy the hot water demand of approx. 7000 citizens.
Big success for SOLID Invest: Investment goal of 1.5 Mio. Euro accomplished New solar thermal plant for the district heating system of Graz is a great opportunity to get on board of SOLID Invest
SOLID is thrilled: At the beginning of Mai 2014, almost six months after the amazing start of SOLID Invest, the initial investment goal of 1.5 Mio Euro had already been reached. SOLID Invest is a unique solar thermal civic participation model and has been more than successful so far. The investment model´s first launch ended now.
Project CommOnEnergy –Shopping Centers with Energy Efficient Architecture
“Lightmall” – project CommONEnergy is a cross-disciplinary research project. It aims to stimulate sustainable consumption behaviors by changing or creating modern, energy efficient shopping malls. SOLID is one of several international project partners. We will install small demo plants and write a feasibility study about the integration of large solar thermal plants in a shopping mall´s energy management.
