Welcome to the most comprehensive database of resources linked to district heating and cooling, including academic reports & studies, research projects outcomes, market analysis as well as other relevant content to the sector.
This article aims to investigate the advantages of DH in an intersectoral
context: offering versatile technology expansion options and therefore the ability to provide
flexibility to the electric system.
This study contributes to an enhanced knowledge of European DHC markets, needed
to develop policies, initiatives and projects contributing to achieving the decarbonisation
targets set by the European Green Deal.
The Solar Heat Worldwide report is giving an overview of the general trends, highlight special applications and outstanding projects, document the solar thermal capacity installed in the important markets worldwide, and ascertain the contribution of solar thermal systems to the supply of energy and the CO2 emissions avoided as a result of operating these systems.
This article reviews the challenges confronted by such integration, investigating the technical and non-technical difficulties associated with the exploitation of solar thermal, waste heat, geothermal, and biomass energy sources into district heating systems.
The six implications of the EU’s “Fit for 55” package for your Heating Network." was co-created with Euroheat and Power (Eloi Piel). In only 5 pages, it summarizes the first concrete steps that can help district heating networks prepare their organization for this transformation.
This study explores the district heating and cooling sector and its new challenges, notably innovative financing schemes and business models capable of addressing the need for increasing leverage of private or alternative financing.
The results of this study provide valuable insight in the market expectations relating to digitalisation efforts such as TEMPO. As such, they will be integrated in the on-going replication effort within the TEMPO project.
This deliverable describes the innovations installed in the A2A demonstrator as well as the main technical and economic aspects of those implementations, the measures for the implementation quality control, the commissioning of the demo site and initial operation.
Several of TEMPO's innovations will be applied in Breschia's A2A demosite to verify their effects in an operational environment and to develop a solution that is easily replicable in low heat density parts of the networks.
