Solar assisted energy supply systems: Opportunities and barriers in a long-term, integrative view
The project deals with the assessment of the integration of solar thermal plants to representative Austrian energy supply systems. Dynamic, long-term (up to 2050) modeling of interactions with building refurbishment and a decentralized heat and electricity generation will be realized. The modeling results and international case studies are used to derive conclusions about options for energy policies. Intensive involvement of stakeholders is considered as an integral part of the project.
