district heating and cooling

Treet or "The Tree" in Norwegian proves that sustainable solutions for buildings in an urban context can indeed be achieved by working across different sectors to create a cost-efficient, modular high-rise building using a prefabrication process. Finding inspiration in the long history of wood construction in Norway and, in particular timber bridge building, the decision to build a tall wood high-rise in Bergen was definitely appropriate. Along the way, Treet has also set a new record for being one of the tallest timber buildings to date.

This report, released in the framework of the research project “The future role of district heating in Europe”, contains the first collection of long time series of national average district heating prices in Europe. The data can serve as a basis to further analysis of district heating prices in European countries.   Long time series of district heating prices have been identified in 23 European countries. The annual average prices have been estimated according to various national sources as national statistical authorities, as well as various international sources.

The STORM project tackles energy efficiency at district level by developing an innovative district heating & cooling (DHC) network controller. The project partners have developed a controller based on self-learning algorithms, which is currently experimented in the two STORM demo sites.   The developed controller will enable to maximise the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks.   The STORM project is funded by the European Union’s H2020 Programme.
