Many construction projects always have one thing in common – the energy infrastructure is key. The guidelines are clear: less CO2 emissions, better lifetime and improved climate protection, all achieved through both intention and action. The influence of insulation on efficiency and cost savings should be quantified and considered in every decision. A new calculation tool  has been launched in order to provide detailed answers to these questions.

The STORM project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. The project partners have developed a controller based on self-learning algorithms, which is currently experimented in the two STORM demo sites.   The developed controller will enable to maximise the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks.   The STORM project is funded by the European Union’s H2020 Programme.

Have you ever wondered how your city can meet its ambitious targets to decarbonise its heating and cooling system? Here is a new project that will offer knowledge, tools and training for supporting your city in such an ambitious goal: PLANHEAT.   PLANHEAT’s main objective is to develop and validate, in real case scenarios, an integrated and easy-to-use tool which will support local authorities in selecting, simulating and comparing alternative low carbon and economically sustainable scenarios for heating and cooling.

In Europe, there is a clear long-term objective to decarbonise the energy system, but it is very unclear how this will be achieved in the heating and cooling sector. As a result, there is currently a lot of uncertainty among policymakers and investors in the heating and cooling sector, primarily due to a lack of knowledge about the long-term changes that will occur in the coming decades. HRE4 will enable new policies as well as prepare the ground for new investments by creating more certainty in relation to the changes that are required.
