Innovative solar thermal project awarded with the 2nd place at the Contracting Award 2016 in Germany
SOLID was part of the “22. International Fair for Heating, Cooling and CHP” (combined heat and power) - the EnEff - in Germany. On April 19th SOLID was awarded with the 2nd place at the Contracting Award 2016 for the project “Contracting with citizen participation”. This award is one of the most important prizes of the energy branch in Germany. Best practice projects which deliver heat at significantly reduced costs and emissions are awarded. Contracting is a groundbreaking financial instrument to implement environmental friendly projects for energy supply at reduced costs for customers.
For 40 years, the main focus of the EnEff-fair has been on district heating, cooling and CHP. Visitors got an overview of a variety of products from industrial and public to private heat supply from about 160 exhibitors. SOLID is one of the pioneers for integrating solar thermal installations into district heating systems, and also presented an attractive investment model.
