Contracts, Business Models and Barriers to Investing in Low Temperature District Heating Projects
Approximately 1.2 EJ of energy are potentially available for recovery each year from urban heat sources in the EU. This corresponds to more than 10 percent of the EU’s total energy demand for
heat and hot water. There are, however, a number of challenges to be met before urban waste heat recovery can be performed on a wide scale.
This paper (2019) focuses on the non-technical issues related to urban waste heat recovery and is written on the basis of opinions gathered from stakeholders in the field.
