Smart urban energy systems
The study (2018) addresses urban energy systems especially from the perspective of district heating and cooling and seeks to identify how the utilisation and smart control of these systems could support the whole energy system to meet the future requirements and challenges. Also in terms of heating solutions customers expect to be able to choose energy solutions and services individually and effortlessly and based on their own values. One of the key conclusions is that district heating companies should be more active in offering comprehensive services including optimisation of living conditions, such as room temperature and humidity, and alternative energy solutions.
