Guide to District Heating is now live.
28th May, 2020
Together with our HeatNet NWE partners, we have developed the guidetodistrictheating.eu. This online platform guides you on what district heating is, what the benefits are and how you can make an informed decision on developing district heating networks in your town or city.
This online guide is a great resource for public sector bodies and other stakeholders in Ireland, and includes everything from the basics of district heating to financing and procurement guidance, specifically:
GUIDANCE FOR CITIES AND TOWNS: Find out the key areas to consider when looking at developing a district heating system in your city or town
CASE STUDIES: Learn about six different district heating networks that were developed as part of the HeatNet NWE project, including Ireland's first large-scale district heating network by South Dublin County Council.
POLICY AND PLANNING: Find out the main policy and planning considerations of developing district heating, and how to create a Transition Roadmap for your region.
FINANCE: Find out about the different business and governance models available to public sector bodies, and how to finance and procure the development of a district heating system.
TECHNOLOGY: Find out about the technological aspects of realising a district heating network, from energy grid integration to building energy management, to integrating energy efficiency retrofitting
