Delivering the Energy Transition: What Role for District Energy
This strategy paper (2016) addresses the following main questions investigating the crucial role that DH&C networks would play in the energy transition towards 2050:
• How does DH&C develop while energy demands in buildings are decreasing?
• What is the role of DH&C in bringing renewable energy sources (RES) to high density city areas and villages?
• How would DH&C solutions support the balance of demand and supply?
