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.

Baxi has introduced the solar thermal collector Mediterranean Slim.
This new collector is characterized by its very low thickness and low weight. It aims to overcome usual problems in the installation of solar panels, related to size and weight. Designed in Spain by the Centre for European Reference Solar Energy Group BDR Thermea, which owns Baxi, the Mediterranean Slim is a new concept of solar panel with a thickness of only 46 mm and 26 kg weight, instead of the usual collectors of about 85-90 mm thick and about 40 kg.
