By conducting a three-fold analysis this masterthesis
tackles the problem on how the solar
thermal fraction of Solar District Heating
(SDH) technology can potentially contribute
to the transition of Germany’s "Bioenergiedörfer"
(BED) district heating systems. First, the
techno-economic potential is analyzed resulting
in 74 suited villages with a demand side potential
of about 240,000 m2 worth the capital
price of 121 Million EUR. Second, two groups
of BED were found comprising a demand side
potential due to technical specification. Second,
analyzing the BED’s adjacent biomass residue
potentials in a circumstance of 50 km, which
should influence the planning process of RES
systems in rural areas. Third, it studies the
existing technological, organisational, decisionmaking
and economic barriers that hinder the
SDH potential of the BED from being utilized
and further unfolds potential approaches how
specific barriers could be overcome.
