This database is project outcome of REWARDHeat. It provides detailed overview of existing knowledge and published research papers on the different related topics such as: renewable and urban waste heat sources, supply technologies, thermal networks, and end-user substations.
The report gives also an overview of existing next-generation networks is presented, while focusing on their characteristics such as temperature regimes, thermal sources, network topology, etc. This information is organised as a publicly available database hosted on Zenodo platform, available here.
Furthermore, the overview of different system components is shown, both for ultra-low and neutral temperature district heating networks: end-user substations, thermal networks configurations, thermal sources, and connection configuration.
