Energy management of houses and buildings is a key component of the 4th generation district heating and cooling concept. It is possible via a set of different technical solutions that allow monitoring and controlling the operation and performances at the network and building level.
This guide is a tool destined to 4DHC developers aiming for an energy-efficient network and to building owners or users who want to make the most of it.
In this guide, energy management topics are discussed from the point of view of the different system stakeholders:
- network operators (demand forecast, pricing and efficiency measures);
- building managers (contractual relationship, monitoring, energy management system, efficient technologies);
- building users (automation, behaviour change).
