“RELaTED project has proven that de-carbonised and efficient district heating can be achieved”

Roberto Garay, RELaTED Project Coordinator RELaTED has been active since 2017. At that time, we envisioned a future where de-carbonised and efficient district heating could be achieved. We have actually done so. By the end of 2021, we have proven the feasibility of our concept. Furthermore, we have applied it in several networks representative of the diverse District Heating context in Europe. With progressive distribution temperature reductions, our experience in the Tarkon area is now extended over the full DH network in Tartu. Together with our local partner GREN, RELaTED has already tested the capacity to reduce distribution network loss by ca 5%. Belgrade has seen the renovation of the DH network in Vinogradski Venac. With this modernization, [...]

VIDEO: Conoce el innovador sistema de calefacción urbana implantado en Iurreta (Bizkaia)

El innovador sistema de calefacción urbana implantado en el complejo de la Ertzaintza en Iurreta (Bizkaia) puede distribuir calor a una calefacción de distrito a ultra baja temperatura, lo que posibilita ahorrar energía y extender el uso de las energías renovables. Se trata de una district heating (calefacción urbana) que suministra agua caliente sanitaria, así como calefacción y refrigeración, a un complejo de la policía vasca compuesto por un conjunto de 14 edificios. Estas novedosas instalaciones, desarrolladas en el marco del proyecto europeo RELaTED, han sido financiadas por la Unión Europea y el Gobierno Vasco, con la colaboración de un total de 14 empresas e instituciones de 8 países, entre ellas, Ente Vasco de la Energía, Tecnalia, Innometal o NIBE.

RELaTED presenta el innovador sistema de calefacción urbana implantado en Iurreta

El proyecto RELaTED ha presentado la innovadora infraestructura desarrollada en las instalaciones de la Ertzaintza, en Iurreta (Bizkaia). La puesta en funcionamiento de este sistema demuestra que se puede distribuir calor a una calefacción de distrito a ultra baja temperatura, lo que posibilitará ahorrar energía y extender el uso de las energías renovables en otras zonas de Europa. El Vicelehendakari y Consejero de Seguridad, Josu Erkoreka, y la Consejera de Desarrollo Económico, Sostenibilidad y Medio Ambiente, Arantxa Tapia, han visitado las instalaciones de la Ertzaintza en Iurreta (Bizkaia) para conocer los resultados del proyecto de investigación europeo RELaTED, Renewable Low Temperature District, en el que participan catorce empresas e instituciones de 8 países europeos. El Gobierno Vasco ha invertido 813.630 euros en la puesta en [...]

Seminario: Estudio de consumo de energía mediante métodos de análisis de datos

El pasado mes de noviembre, Roberto Garay, coordinador del proyecto RELaTED, participó como ponente junto con Mikel Lumbreras, en los cursos de doctorado en Eficiencia Energética y Sostenibilidad en Ingeniería y Arquitectura (EESIA), que imparte la Universidad del País Vasco. Presentacion CursoBajo el título “Estudio de consumo de energía mediante métodos de análisis de datos”, se abordaron diferentes aspectos de la medición de cargas términas en edificios: sistemas, herramientas y aplicaciones. Durante el seminario, los asistentes tuvieron la oportunidad de conocer las aplicaciones prácticas de estos sistemas a través de las mediciones reales, como las desarrolladas para el proyecto RELaTED. Los ponentes realizaron la revisión de un número relevante de métodos aplicados desde la época del PRISM, pasando por el [...]

RELaTED presents promising results in its 9th General Assembly

After two days of intense activity, the RELaTED project consortium ends its General Assembly. On this occasion, the meetings were held in a hybrid format (onsite and online) at the Tecnalia facilities in Spain. Due to the current health situation, part of the project partners could not attend in person, but they connected by teleconference for all the sessions. On this occasion, the meetings were held in a hybrid format (onsite and online) at the Tecnalia facilities in Spain. The first day the status of the demonstration sites was reported, in all cases already built and in operation. Specifically, the demonstrator sites had the opportunity to share with the rest of the partners the technical advances made in [...]

Webconference: Innovative District Heating and Cooling in practice

How do we go from theory to practice? Representatives of the projects RELaTED and ReUseHeat shared their experience with their pilot sites of Belgrade and Berlin.  Speakers’ slides Fitfor55 - Recast of the EED heating & Cooling 28-10-2021_MLaaniste by Madis Laaniste RELATED - Beoelek pilot site 28-10-2021_RSavic by Radmilo Savic ReUseHeat - Installing a Heat Pump System in Metro Networks 28-10-2021_KOchsner by Karl Ochsner Sen.   Following the release of important legislative actions, like the Fit for 55 package in July 2021, boosting innovation in energy sources and energy-saving sectors has been key. Innovative technologies and systems entail great challenges. District Heating and Cooling is no exception. Pilot and demonstration sites, although not running smoothly all the time, are great steps [...]

La implantación de la base de demostración en Iurreta llega a su fin

A falta de algunos ajustes en su sistema de gestión, los trabajos de renovación de la red de calor del complejo de la Ertzaintza, en el que han trabajado conjuntamente el proyecto RELaTED y el Gobierno Vasco, han finalizado. El principal objetivo del proyecto RELaTED, que cuenta con financiación europea, es demostrar que es posible reducir la temperatura de suministro de las redes de calor hasta aproximadamente los 40ºC, sin que ello suponga un deterioro en las condiciones de comfort en el interior de los edificios. Para lograr este objetivo, se ha integrado un innovador sistema de bombas de calor que son capaces de proporcionar frío de alta eficiencia, lo que aumenta el rendimiento global de la instalación los 12 [...]
