Survey of 53 fifth generation district heating and cooling grids (5GDHC) in Germany
This article presents a survey conducted among utility companies and engineering offices in Germany to collect data on 53 fifth-generation district heating and cooling grids. Fifth-generation district heating and cooling (5GDHC) grids are a (...)
Know-it-all about the 5th generation of district heating and cooling grids!
Digital, controllable, intelligent, low-temperature, multi-sources, allowing optimised storage... benefits of the 5th generation of district heating and cooling grids (5GDHC) are plentiful. More and more projects are being developed throughout (...)
How to decarbonise heating and cooling on a European and global scale?
Representing 50% of the energy consumption of industry and buildings, the heating and cooling sector must undergo a profound transformation to be decarbonised. Local low-temperature energy loops are key to this transformation. They emit 54% (...)
District heating carries geothermal energy into homes, thereby reducing fossil fuel consumption
Geothermal energy can be very useful for delivering heat to buildings, safeguarding the environment while generating economic benefits. District cooling systems are also becoming increasingly widespread. District heating is one of the solutions (...)
Decarbonising heating and cooling: a climate imperative
The EU has met its target to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20% by 2020, compared with 1990 levels. However, meeting targets for 2030 and beyond requires a doubling of the annual reduction in greenhouse gas emissions achieved between 20 (...)
The second course on 5GDHC is already online!
The EU supports the uptake of smart and low-temperature district heating and cooling (DHC) networks to speed up the process of decarbonisation and to achieve a climate-neutral economy by 2050 (European Green Deal). However, designing, planning (...)
