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.
