Solar thermal integration might in some situations be counter-beneficial for a renewable
transition, especially when considering an energy system supplied by high shares of
renewable energy. This is one of the conclusions from a study performed by Aalborg
University as part of SHC Task 52 on Solar Heat and Energy Economics in Urban
Environments. This conclusion was reached by performing a series of energy system
analyses under various conditions of four national energy systems in Germany, Austria,
Italy and Denmark. The solar thermal potentials were identified for each country today
and in a future energy system converted to 100% renewable sources in the heating and
electricity sectors. However, mixed results were found regarding the impacts on economy,
environment and energy consumption when installing these solar thermal potentials.
