Southern European Weather
The district heating and cooling network in Córdoba (Spain) covers a building at the University of Córdoba.
Spain is one of the most attractive countries in Europe for developing solar energy due to the amount of sunlight available. The direct normal irradiation in the middle pf spain is around 1980 kWh/m2 year, which makes the concentrated solar technology a promising solution to cover the heating demand of buildings, as well as the cooling demand through absorption chillers.
Furthermore, due to availability of local biomass sources, biomass boilers will become part of the technological design.
