RES - Renewable Energy Sources

This paper presents the RELaTED decentralized Ultra-Low Temperature DH network scheme, and its adaptation to several operational schemes such as new and existing DH networks, with different levels of complexity. Transitory phases in the conversion process are discussed. District heating (DH) systems are one of the most energy efficient heating systems in urban environments, with proven reliability within many decades already.
