Content

District heating and cooling systems (DHC), both large and small scale, need to be more efficient, intelligent and cheaper. The development and deployment of intelligent systems using smart metering and control solutions for optimization, the general increase of sensors and actuators as Internet of Things (IoT) develops, consumer empowerment, and exploiting multiple energy resources are enabling factors for future DHC systems. The inclusion of waste heat recovery, heat pumps, thermal storage, cogeneration and renewable energy integration, and to roll-out solutions for the integration of intelligent thermal network with smart electricity grids and data centers, are opportunities to increase the overall efficiency.
