Energy providers and property owners can both benefit from an innovative cooling concept based on the utilization of the flexibility in district heating systems, and in particular by harvesting excess heat from a cooling process. A Berlin demo case is presented from the Flexi-Sync project.
To ensure that cities’ needs and leadership role are taken on board in this pivotal moment for the future of heating and cooling, Celsius Cities, #DHCities, Energy Cities and FEDARENE have come together to endorse the Cities Manifesto for Fossil-Free Heating and Cooling.
The combination of district heating and heat pumps are foreseen to have a key role in the future district heating systems. This article looks at the integration of large-scale heat pumps in district heating, which can help balancing the power grid when the production of electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources fluctuates.
