5th generation heating and cooling (5GDHC), is a highly optimised, demand-driven, self-regulating, energy management system for urban areas. In this ultra-low temperature grid with decentralized energy plants, a closed thermal energy loop ensures hot and cold exchange within and among buildings. The Interreg project D2Grids, aims at rolling out this proven but underutilised concept to increase North-West Europe share of renewables. 5 pilot sites in Bochum, Brunssum, Glasgow, Nottingham and Paris-Saclay will demontrate this impactful technology, in order to industrialise 5GDHC systems and boost its commercialization potential.
