Description

The Daimler AG aims to convert the energy consumption of all German factories to carbon neutral energy up to 2022. The plant in Bad Cannstatt gives the example to study how solar thermal plants can substitute the district heating that is fed from coal fired power generation.

Client

Daimler AG

Partner

Steinbeis Research Institute Solites

Aim

The objective is to develop a concept for integration of a solar thermal plant into the local heat supply to cover a maximum amount of the heat demand of the factory to substitute the existing carbon fired district heating.

Implementation

The project focuses on the integration of solar thermal plants into the heating system of an automotive factory. Therefore, the required area is identified and possible space for the solar collectors at and besides the factory are analysed. Concepts for the realization of the solar thermal plants and their integration into the existing heating system are developed, completed by an analysis of economics.

Results

Using the example of the plant in Bad Cannstatt, concepts for the integration of solar thermal systems into the district heating-supported heat supply are developed.
