Heat storage to balance production and demand is one of the basic principles in the definition of 5GDHC systems, 5th generation heating and cooling networks. It can be carried out on different time scales (short term and long term) and be of different types (storage in surface reservoirs, geological storage in aquifers, mines, probe fields...).It is nevertheless essential to study the effects of reinjecting water at a warmer or colder temperature into the basement during this storage.

As an active D2Grids partner, Nottingham City Council will be commissioning The Coal Authority to undertake a mine energy study for a proposed pilot district heat network at the Crabtree Farm Estate, Bullwell, Nottingham, UK. Around 60 homes managed by a social housing provider could benefit from this scheme, and it will be a vital test bed for further expansion of the technology in the area. This project aligns well with City Council aspirations to become the UK’s first Carbon Neutral City by 2028.

The European Green Deal aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. As energy production and use account for more than 75% of the EU’s greenhouse gas emissions.   In order to meet our climate objectives, while also guaranteeing secure and affordable energy for consumers, we need to better link up our energy system and exploit the synergies enabled by an integrated energy system.
