The ambition of this H2020 project is the development of an innovative open district network system for space heating and cooling that uses a thermo-chemical carrier to transport energy potential through its pipe system. This requires the absorption and desorption processes taking place at normal pressure. It focuses on the extension of residual heats by using the energy potential transport free of thermal losses and lowering temperatures in thermal transport. The exploitation of low-temperature heat sources should be improved (industrial and renewable, e.g. solar thermal or geothermal).
