Future Low Temperature District Heating Design Guidebook

The IEA DHC Annex TS1 is a three year international research project which aims to identify holistic and innovative approaches to communal low temperature heat supply by using district heating. It is a framework that promotes the discussion of future but also existing heating networks with an international group of experts.
The goal is to obtain a common development direction for the wide application of low temperature district heating systems in the near future. The material collected and summarized in the presented guidebook show that low temperature district heating is a key enabling technology to increase the integration of renewable and waste energy for heating and cooling.
