A new method of low-temperature heating system makes it possible to reduce energy use by at least 30% and shortens the payoff time for housing cooperatives.
In the Netherlands the KoWaNet project has tested local low temperature networks in order to make heating and cooling of Dutch buildings carbon neutral.
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.
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.
This text describes Friendly Sam, a toolbox developed to formulate optimisation-based models of energy systems.
Transition strategies for delivering low carbon district heat: 6 guides to put you on the right track
The HeatNet NWE project aims to introduce 4DHC (4th generation District Heating) in North West Europe. Here are six guides from the project.
This handbook from the Upgrade DH project describes technical and non-technical approaches for upgrading existing systems.
This article presents three methods for optimising the operation of a District Heating/District Cooling network, focusing on the utility side of the network.
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.
DH systems operating at lower temperatures than conventional systems enable utilizing heat sources with low temperature like waste heat.
