Results of the 2nd International DHC+ Student Awards
In 2014, the Awards applications came from all over Europe and covered an extraordinary range of topics in the field of DHC. Students participating in the competition had a very diverse background: from engineering and energy systems to environmental studies – which confirms the cross-cutting character of DHC. The 2nd edition saw a positive development in terms of geographical representation – even more so as the winners came from less prominent DHC countries – Spain, the Netherlands and Switzerland. Here are their names:
On the first place:
Mateo de Guadalfajara, Miguel Angel Lozano, Luis Maria Serra from University of Zaragoza, Spain with their paper ‘Geographic evaluation of Central Solar Heating Plants with Seasonal Storage for the residential sector in Europe’
The tworunners up:
Kathelijne Bouw from University of Utrecht, the Netherlands with her paper ‘Towards an expansion of heat networks in the Netherlands’
Loïc Quiquerez from University of Geneva, Switzerland with his paper ‘Connection of the two largest district heating networks of Geneva for a more efficient and renewable overall energy system’
On top of the research contribution of EUR 1000 for the 1st place winner, all three winners had the opportunity to present their work in front of over 200 participants of the 14th International DHC Symposium in Stockholm during a special ceremony at the Closing Plenary Session. Their work was published in the International EuroHeat&Power Magazine.
