Decarboning urban heating and cooling systems
District energy is a proven solution for delivering heating, hot water and cooling services through a network of insulated pipes – from a central point of generation to end users. It requires a vast amount of energy that when sourced from fossil fuels, accounts for a major portion of a city’s greenhouse gas emissions. The EU-funded WEDISTRICT project will demonstrate an integrated district heat and cooling (DHC) network combining renewable energy sources, thermal storage and waste heat recovery at low temperatures. Innovative concepts include use of molten salts for thermal storage, interaction with other energy networks, and end-user involvement through ICT solutions. The integrated DHC solution proposed by WEDISTRICT will significantly help decarbonise urban heating and cooling systems.
