The CoolHeating project goal is to support the development of the market for small modular renewable heating and cooling systems in cities and municipalities of South-East Europe (SEE). This goal will be achieved through the transfer of knowledge and joint activities of partners from countries with good practice examples (Austria, Denmark, and Germany) and countries with modest development in this sector (Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia).

This paper presents the RELaTED decentralized Ultra-Low Temperature DH network scheme, and its adaptation to several operational schemes such as new and existing DH networks, with different levels of complexity. Transitory phases in the conversion process are discussed. District heating (DH) systems are one of the most energy efficient heating systems in urban environments, with proven reliability within many decades already.

The 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 maximises the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks.

The H20202 PLANHEAT project develops and validates an integrated and easy-to-use tool to support local authorities in selecting, simulating and comparing alternative low carbon and economically sustainable scenarios for heating and cooling. It will be validated in the three PLANHEAT cities. The PLANHEAT simulation tool will be designed to support local authorities in:

There is enough waste energy produced in the EU to heat the EU’s entire building stock.    Waste heat recovery from energy-intensive industry and cogeneration is slowly picking up in the EU. But did you know that even the excess heat produced in a metro system could heat houses? And did you know that supermarkets, data centres and sewage systems also produce excess heat that can be used?

The supply of heat through district energy systems is a common technology used by local municipalities across Europe, but far from all are efficient and many of the local actors’ struggle with the challenge of transforming these systems into efficient systems. Polish district heating needs modernisation, important to improve air quality and reach the European climate goals.
