HOW IT WORKS
District heating is a system for distributing heat generated in a centralized location for residential and commercial heating requirements. District heating is sustainable, energy-efficient, safe and convenient for consumers.
Potential heat sources for district heating are waste heat from industry, plants burning waste, biomass power plants, geothermal and solarthermal energy, large scale heat pumps, waste heat from cooling purposes and other sustainable energy sources.
A heat exchanger – instead of a local boiler – transfers the heat from the district heating underground network to an internal circulation. Through a district heating network, hot water is provided to consumers to be used as room/floor heating and as domestic/sanitary systems.
Pre-fabricated and pre-insulated pipes, which are directly buried into the ground and operate with lower temperatures, distribute warm water in residential or commercial buildings.
