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.
Excess heat from the London Underground provides district heating in Islington, where LO2 and LO3 are two of London’s demonstrators.
The demonstrators in Cologne recover heat from sewage water and use it in decentralized local heating networks.
The utilisation of residential buildings as thermal energy storage has been implemented in a pilot project i Kvillebäcken in Sweden.
Göteborg Energi presents the different types of personnel, the graphical IT tools, and how they can be used for diagnostics of failures.
