SOLID and representatives from the City of Graz on the trail of northern large solar thermal plants
SOLID´s CEO Christian Holter, experts from SOLID and an official delegation from the city of Graz visited large solar thermal systems in Denmark from the 21st – 22nd of January. The short trip was instrumental in learning how solar companies in Denmark secure supply for large district heating systems, to exchange experiences and have a look at best practice examples in the region. Among others, two plants in Dronninglund and Vojens were of special interest.

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.
