D2Grids has developed procurement guidelines for those looking to develop a 5th generation district heating and cooling (5GDHC) system. It builds off the guide produced by HeatNet NWE on 4DHC systems.
These guidelines are not meant to be prescriptive, but instead aim to contribute to the goal of industrializing the 5GDHC approach by identifying suitable procurement processes and development timelines for a 5GDHC system. As the D2Grids project is still underway, and final technical criteria are to be determined, some aspects of this guide may be updated by project’s end.
