This French brochure from ADEME describes how a residential building can be connected to district heating. It explains the advantages of this option: reducing greenhouse gases emissions, especially if the district heating system is linked to a biomass plant or is using heat recovered from industry; mutualize costs and reducing energy bills. The administrative procedures to connect a building to a district heating system are described. A figure shows the various components of a district heating system.
