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 [...]
