This handbook is the culmination of the findings and results of the ReUseHeat project and consolidates information from low-temperature waste heat recovery sites. Apart from technical validation, the ReUseHeat project has generated knowledge about the urban waste heat potential in Europe, main stakeholders, how to write efficient contracts and low-temperature business model characteristics.
The handbook analysis examines whether LTDH is cost-effective and competitive compared to high-temperature DH and individual heating technologies, by comparing the levelized cost of heat (LCOH) estimations calculated for each heating solution. In this study, LCOH is calculated with an Excel-based calculation tool which is you can download here and use it for your calculations.
