This article presents three methods for optimising the operation of a District Heating/District Cooling network, focusing on the utility side of the network.
This article presents an overview of Thermal Energy Storage (TES), which can help balance energy demand and supply over time – and reduce CO2 emissions and costs.
The IEA publication Solar Heat for cities: The sustainable solution provides information about solar heating for cities and showcases nine solar district heating systems built in Europen cities.
This article describes different ways to optimise the production and supply of district heat and cooling, from smaller to larger optimisations.
Sewage water can be used to recover waste heat for heating or cooling buildings, and the use of waste water has high energy potential.
This article describes strategies to improve energy efficiency in data centres – such as using waste heat for district heating systems.
In this text you can learn about waste incineration and Waste-to-energy (WtE). It also describes the method’s role in recycling and its part in a circular economy.
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.
