Urban Energy Lecture: Thermal energy from the urban water cycle
Lecture by Prof.dr. Jan Peter van der Hoek
Hosted by the Urban Energy Institute
Date: Wednesday 9 June, 2021
Time: 4-5pm CEST
Moderator: Henk Visscher
In the energy transition one of the objectives is to abandon the use of natural gas in the build environment. Energy recovery from the water cycle is one of the possibility: the so called aquathermal energy. This includes thermal energy recovery from surface water, wastewater and drinking water. Two applications will be discussed in more detail: thermals energy recovery from wastewater by use of heat exchangers in the shower, and thermal energy recovery from drinking water for cooling purposes by use of a heat exchanger in a large drinking water transport pipe.
