Video: District heating solutions by RELaTED project and METRO THERM

In this video, Kasper Korsholm Østergaard, PhD, R&D Manager at METRO THERM A/S explains some details of their contribution to the RELaTED project ultra low temperature district heating concept. METRO THERM is a Danish-based company with a long tradition in the production of district heating units and heat pumps. METRO THERM is also one of the 14-companies which have coordinated their interests, technologies and investment roadmaps to develop, deploy and test the RELaTED project concept. The most relevant part of the RELaTED project for METRO THERM is the development of a triple function substation and the use of a microbooster heat pump in ultra low temperature district heating.

Low temperature district heating concepts

DH systems were designed many decades ago. In most cases, they are designed and operated to distribute heat at about 80 °C to consumers. RELaTED pursues the development of DH networks with service temperature levels as low as 40-50 ºC. “D.2.1 Low temperature concepts” deliverable reports on the RELaTED low temperature concepts, considering potentialities and limitations imposed by distributed energy sources (DER), low temperature (LT) and ultra-low temperature (ULT) distribution systems as well as heat and domestic hot water demand.

In RELaTED Task 2.1 the low temperature district heating concept is being defined, and some of the possibilities for integrating distributed energy recourses into [...]

Novel Domestic Hot Water Microbooster Heat Pump in Ultra-Low Temperature District Heating

The RELaTED project partners Metro Therm and DTI presented a novel microbooster heat pump at the 4th International Conference on Smart Energy Systems and 4th Generarion District Heating, that took place in Aalborg (Denmark). Read the following article to learn more about this study. AUTHORS: Matteo Caramaschi, R&D Engineer at Metro Therm A/S, Kasper Korsholm Østergaard, PhD, R&D Manager at METRO THERM A/S, and Christian Holm Christiansen, Senior Specialist at the Danish Technological Institute. Metro Therm microbooster. Credits: Metro Therm A/S. Ultra-low temperature district heating aims to improve overall networks efficiency and operational costs by reducing supply temperatures below 50 °C. Lower supply temperatures allow for: transmission and distribution heat losses minimization; performance improvement potential of heat generation plants; integration [...]

Webinar – New solutions for sustainable district heating in European cities

Watch the recording of the Covenant of mayors and RELaTED project webinar "New solutions for sustainable district heating in European cities" and learn about the EU’s heating & cooling decarbonisation policies and technologies available. Watch the recoding of the webinar>> The recently revised EU Renewable Energy Directive recognises heating and cooling as a key sector in accelerating the decarbonisation of the energy system. In order to facilitate the penetration of renewable energy in the heating and cooling sector, each Member State is required to increase the share of renewable energy supplied for heating and cooling by an indicative 1.3 percentage points as a yearly average for the periods of 2021-2025 and 2026-2030. In this endeavour, new technologies and innovative concepts [...]

District Heating Systems are already Smart and in the path of de-carbonisation

This second newsletter of RELaTED provides an insight to the progress of our concept for the de-carbonisation of District Heating (DH) networks. We hope that it will be useful for any DH operator, technology supplier, engineers, and any other stakeholder in the DH industry. Roberto Garay, RELaTED Project Coordinator With the first year of the project already gone, we have found that DH systems deployed across EU are already digitalized to a large extent, with ongoing plans for full digitalization pretty soon. For instance, most of our demonstration networks in TARTU and BELGRADE were already in remote-reading schemes, and/or controlled through predictive algorithms. RELaTED project will help most of our demonstration networks to be pioneers in low temperature, [...]
