Optimisation of the building installation
The performance of district heating substations is influenced by the building installation behind the substations, which often suffers from faults. To optimise the return temperature, also faults in the building installation must be minimised.
Decentralised buffers at the building side will cut the power peaks in the network, thereby allowing reduction of the network pipes dimensions. Especially for rural areas where the piping represents a relative high investment, this concept can enhance the economic feasibility of district heating networks.
