What’s new in District Heating Systems (DHs)?

DHs have traditionally been designed to be operated with central energy production facilities and a variety of distributed consumption locations (dwellings, tertiary buildings, etc). In some cases, heat is partially obtained from local industrial waste heat streams, leading to almost de-carbonized heating energy supplies.


In case you did not know about the role of waste heat in DHs, would you like to upskill your knowledge about its benefits? What is the role of waste heat coming from industries in the EU strategy on Heating & Cooling and H2020 objectives?


These and more questions will be covered during our one-hour webinar on the Integration of Industrial Waste Heat in District Heating. Moreover, you will learn about the RELaTED project DH concept, where substantially lower temperatures are used in the DH network with benefits such as increased possibility to use industrial waste heat at lower temperatures. In particular, you will hear about how the regional energy agency of the Basque Country (EVE) will identify industrial waste heat sources suitable of heat recovery.


Join the webinar and learn what the future holds for Industrial Waste Heat in District Heating! Send us your questions and let's discuss together.
