The HeatNet NWE project aims to introduce 4DHC (4th generation District Heating) in North West Europe. Here are six guides from the project.
Business & Finance articles
This handbook from the Upgrade DH project describes technical and non-technical approaches for upgrading existing systems.
This text provides an overview of ways to fund the scaling of demonstrator projects, including how to manage requirements from financers.
Scaling is essential, but also challenging. Learn more about recommendations for successfully scaling your heating and cooling demonstrator projects.
This checklist provides guidance on what steps to take to improve your chances of aquiring funding for the scaling and replication of your demonstration project.
This webinar provided a European perspective on financial investment, from EU’s Urban Agenda Energy Transition Partnership to success cases and transparent green bonds to minimize the risks.
We summarize some key points from RINA’s analysis of the bankability of urban excess heat recovery investments (from the H2020 Reuseheat project).
Interconnecting cities district heating grids can achieve more efficient production units, better economics and more resilience.
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.
The utilisation of residential buildings as thermal energy storage has been implemented in a pilot project i Kvillebäcken in Sweden.
With the evolution of electricity/power sources and district energy systems, it is becoming easier to increase the interaction.
