District heating and cooling (DHC) benefits energy security, the economy, and the environment. It is one of the most effective means to implement renewable energy, utilize surplus heat, and benefit from heat and power coupling.
But, as you could read in the last issue of Hot Cool, the DHC potential remains mostly unexploited globally. Only 8% of energy consumption in DHC networks is renewable energy today – as illustrated on the cover of this magazine!
It is too bad! We can do better! There are opportunities in almost any country to seriously improve the share of Renewable Energy in district heating networks.
In this issue of Hot Cool, you can read about how utilities in Asia, Andorra, Austria, Denmark, and Scotland deployed new DHC infrastructure, improved the energy efficiency, and integrated up to 97% renewables into existing networks.
