Abstract

Low-temperature district heating (LTDH) has the advantages as reduced network heat loss, improved quality match between energy supply and energy demand, and increased utilization of low-grade waste heat and renewable energy. The LTDH represents the next generation district heating (DH) system. The use of LTDH for low energy buildings was demonstrated through pilot projects carried out in Denmark. However, the majority of the buildings were built during the time when there had little requirement for building energy conservation. In order to implement the LTDH in a large scale, its feasibility to supply existing building areas which are characterized with high heating demand needs to be examined. In this paper, the DH network deliverable capacity to supply LTDH to an existing building area is studied based on building thermal performance and DH network hydraulic performance simulation.
