University POLITEHNICA of Bucharest will test the integration of renewable energy sources in its existing district heating (DH) network, which is to date operated by a gas cogeneration plant.

The existing DH network is of arborescent type with consumers at the branch ends unable to benefit from the appropriate thermal level of the heat carrier. This worsens whenever new consumers are connected to the heating network.

WEDISTRICT proposes the integration of a hybrid system based on geothermal and solar energy. 

This comprises one subsystem that produces thermal energy (heat, cold, domestic hot water) based on geothermal heat pumps and hybrid photovoltaic solar collectors. And another one, based on PV panels, which will fully cover the thermal subsystem power consumption and will use storage battery array equipped with an intelligent (...)
