Efficient district heating systems are an important component in ensuring a sustainable energy supply and contributing to better management of energy resources and greenhouse gas emissions in the Baltic Sea region. Today there are many district heating systems in the region which are technically obsolete and cannot live up to stricter requirements for energy efficiency.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR COMPANIES, MUNICIPALITIES AND ACADEMIA IN THE PROJECT:
Get help to connect with the project partners
Share experiences or demonstrate technical solutions and systems at conferences
Take part in the project's reports and tools
Take part in and use training materials in low-temperature district heating
Participate in dialogue with Sustainable Business Hub and other members in the district heating area
There is a great need to upgrade the aging facilities and integrate more advanced systems and innovative technologies. One way to make the distribution of district heating more efficient could be to lower the temperature in the network, which would reduce heat losses. However, there are several challenges to make this work in interaction with today's network and there is a need for collaboration and more knowledge.
The project “ Low Temperature District Heating for the Baltic Sea Region ” (LowTEMP) works to make the district heating supply in the partner regions more sustainable and will work for the installation of the so-called fourth generation district heating network, which is characterized by the distribution of low temperature heat in insulated pipes with lower pipe dimensions. . At the same time, it is possible to utilize more energy sources in the system, e.g. residual heat from industrial processes and renewable energy sources such as geoenergy and solar heat.
