Prototype for new multimedia pipe types for LTDH distribution system

This deliverable investigates the possibility of implementing a heat recovery system in the distribution pipes of a district heating network. The aim with the multimedia pipes is to minimise the heat losses from the distribution pipes.

Draft design manual for new pipe components for LTDH distribution systems underground

,
The implementation of LTDH network and the development of the DH pipes production allow the use of in flexible plastic pipes also for main lines. This deliverable provides the draft of the installation manual of the new pipe components for LTDH distribution systems in Høje-Taastrup and Lund.

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.

How to optimize cascade couplings for best use of low temperature sources

,
Kraftringen and COWI A/S have worked together on a paper that describes the analysis of energy efficiency in heat pump systems that recover waste heat from low temperature heat sources for District Heating. Martin Gierow, chemical engineer and…
