Thermal urban energy systems

Deliver heat, in the right place, at the right time and at the right temperature

We need:
• Technology in place to deliver heat efficiently to all parties in the urban environment.
• Reliable and predictable thermal heating systems, enabled by robust business models.
• Integrated solutions connecting distributed and centralised sources, and on-demand storage facilities. 

Research challenges
•   Better predictions of geothermal source and storage performance.
•   Development of high-efficiency, low-noise and low-cost heat pumps.
•   Governance of heat and electricity infrastructure, such as underground management and optimisation.
•   Balancing heat demand and supply over the year
•   Integration of renewable sources of different scales into district heating networks.
