Low-temperature district heating and cooling are setting the way towards decarbonising our cities. To this aim, 5GDHC by delivering low-temperature heat and cold to connected homes in a circular way, is a promising way to decarbonize our cities.   GreenFlex, with the help of all D2Grids project partners, is launching a platform to inform project developers, industries and investors who wish to uptake this heating and cooling technology and inspire new 5GDHC projects.

While heating and cooling are responsible for half of Europe's total energy consumption, 5th generation heating and cooling networks are the solution to help us move towards decarbonised cities. D2GRIDS, a project funded by Interreg NWE, is shaping the future of supplying our urban networks with geothermal energy and network flexibility.

“I would like to build more sustainably, but the costs…”: The fear of additional costs due to sustainability often leads to doubts and hesitations during planning and implementation. A new study from Denmark now shows with regard to new building construction that this is unfounded.   Here it becomes clear: more sustainable does not equal more expensive. On the contrary. “Sustainable is (more) expensive”: a prejudice that has accompanied sustainable building since its beginnings.

Monday 30 November 2020, 10:30-11:45 CET   Air infiltration in buildings has multiple consequences on energy use and indoor environmental quality which depend on the location and distribution of leakages. Among others, pollutant infiltration and air draft are highly affected by leakage distribution. In current practice, leakage detection is frequently performed together with an airtightness test.

Tuesday November 10th, 2020 at 12:00-14:30 UTC/GMT   Progressing the scientific basis of indoor environmental quality is essential to understand which aspects can be better optimised to substantially reduce energy use in buildings. In recent years, IEA Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC) international research projects have been investigating for this purpose both indoor air quality and thermal comfort.
