This text summarizes 10 case studies on low temperature district heating (LTDH) systems and presents the resulting measured data.
High temperature district cooling (HTDC) refers to district cooling systems operating at higher temperature levels than traditional systems. Using higher temperatures has many potential benefits in terms of reduced energy use, reduced emissions and reduced costs.
Low temperature district heating can prove to be an important part in also keeping the globe’s temperature low. This webinar presents some of the opportunities and challenges cities may encounter in their endeavour towards a sustainable and efficient low temperature district heating systems.
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.
Biofuel CHP plants have the potential to be used as a renewable peak plant, during times of low supply or high demand.
DH systems operating at lower temperatures than conventional systems enable utilizing heat sources with low temperature like waste heat.
In Helsingborg, an absorption chiller at Västhamnsverket has been installed by Öresundskraft in order to deliver district cooling.
This article describes how solar energy can be harvested and used to supply district heating networks.
