Good Practice database
08 May 2008
Opening up markets for collective solar thermal systems is the overall objective of SOLARGE.
Within the scope of SOLARGE a European Good Practice database is being set up in order to represent and analyse the factors and stories of success of existing plants. More than 150 projects from at least seven European countries will be edited in a comparable format.
Not only technical data are evaluated, but a special focal point will be the projects' present stories of success. Crucial aspects are for example the impulse for the project, kind of financing and support and special technical solutions.
How to use the Good Practice database
Click into the map in order to select a country and the database entries from this country will be displayed. Afterwards you may choose a certain project or refine your search.
Database entries are sorted by three criteria:
· Type of building
· Size of CSTS
Both Country and Type of building offer the option 'Show all …' and 'Skip …' respectively. This is useful, if one or both of these criteria should be disregarded.
1) If you chose 'Show all …' first and afterwards a concrete type of building, you will be displayed all the entries of this type of building, regardless of which country they come from.
2) If you want display those entries of a certain size from a certain country, select this country first, click 'Skip …' and finally select Size of CSTS.
A printable version in portable document format PDF is available at the bottom of each entry (Downloads).
If you want to participate and to receive the questionnaire as DOC file, please contact one of the SOLARGE project partners. The questionnaire is available in eight languages.
You are welcome to apply to the project partners for further information as well.
Please find specific contact information from the participating countries (in their particular languages):
