Improved use of individual metering concepts

, ,
In COOL DH we have studied how to improve individual metering concepts and ways of using gathered data for billing district heating. In the report Improved use of individual metering concepts, we provide an overview of regulations on district heating metering and billing in Sweden and Denmark and an overview on applications to use on customer’s meter readings for energy efficiency improvements.

New design concepts for optimisation of LTDH distribution systems

, , , , ,
In this report you will learn about the design process of a low-temperature district heating network, highlighting the design factors that lead to reduction of heat losses in the distribution pipes. To demonstrate the technology, two real-scale demonstration projects are described in Høje-Taastrup, Denmark and in Lund, Sweden. Emanuele Zilio, engineer at COWI A/S, gave a short interview to summarize the report

Solutions for local integration of renewable energy sources (RES)

, ,
This deliverable summarizes and gives an overview of existing and newly developed technical solutions used for the domestic hot water production that can be implemented in low temperature or ultra-low temperature district heating networks, and that can increase the share of renewable energy in the building sector.

Invitation to external partners to be part of a test bed for Low Temperature District Heating
