Assessment methodology for urban excess heat recovery solutions in energy-efficient District Heating Networks
This work (2018), in the context of the ReUseHeat project, defines a performance assessment procedure applied to four advanced heat recovery solutions from data centres, hospital cooling systems, sewage water networks and underground stations. Key Performance Indicators are defined to allow for integral evaluation in line with the Smart Cities Information System guidelines. The proposed methodology will sustain reliable demonstration results and facilitate replication towards more energy-efficient DHNs.
