What’s new in District Heating Systems (DHs)? What are the benefits of industrial waste heat in district heating? These and more questions were covered during the webinar on the Integration of Industrial Waste Heat in District Heating. The European Portal for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (BUILD UP) and the RELaTED Project organized a one-hour webinar that took place on Monday, 2 December 2019, at 12:00 CET.
District Heating Systems have traditionally been designed to be operated with central energy production facilities and a variety of distributed consumption locations (dwellings, tertiary buildings, etc). In some cases, heat is partially obtained from local industrial waste heat streams, leading to almost de-carbonized heating energy supplies.
What is the role of waste heat coming from industries in the EU strategy on Heating & Cooling and H2020 objectives and its benefits? These and more questions were covered during this one-hour webinar on the Integration of Industrial Waste Heat in District Heating.
Moreover, during this webinar the attendees also learnt about the RELaTED project DH concept, where substantially lower temperatures are used in the DH network with substantial benefits such as increased possibility to use industrial waste heat at lower temperatures. In particular, Jesus Maria Casado, Renewable Energy Technician at the regional energy agency of the Basque Country (EVE), speaks about how EVE will identify industrial waste heat sources suitable of heat recovery.
