Interconnecting cities district heating grids can achieve more efficient production units, better economics and more resilience.
This article presents different aspects of distribution-side technologies for LTDH and HTDC.
There are big advantages with short term thermal storage (TES) to cut daily peaks in the heat load in DH/DC systems.
This article describes the main techniques adopted for decreasing peak loads and manage the demand side of a DH or DC system.
Ground source heat pumps (GSHP) and deeper geothermal heat can provide temperatures high enough for conventional DH.
