EEB-03-2016: Integration of advanced technologies for heating and cooling at building and district level
Around 70 to 90% of energy use associated with buildings is that from heating water and heating and cooling space. Apart from energy saving through efficient building design and insulation, technologies exist that can improve heating and cooling. District Heating Networks (DHNs) are established in Europe and much research has been done to improve design and accept low-grade heat from other sources e.g., waste heat and renewables to replace fossil fuels often exploited in CHP based systems. Meanwhile, cooling during hot weather is becoming more prevalent in urban areas and energy use from electric fans and air conditioning systems is poorly documented in the literature.
A DHN is being planned in Stoke-on-Trent in the UK and a CHP is being planned at the nearby Keele University campus site as part of energy improvement plans that include a Smart Energy Grid. The local area has a range of cleaner energy sources that could feed into a district heating network including geothermal energy, heat pumps, biomass, solar thermal energy and waste heat from local manufacturing processes. Meanwhile much social housing in the city is being retrofitted with renewable technologies including solar thermal panels. This project will examine the role of distributed power generation and low-grade waste heat (<400°C) from local industry as a form of peak-load supply to feed a “smart DHN”. This project will examine technical and economic feasibility including planning barriers.
The overall aim of this project is to design and test integrated and optimised combinations of technologies, including renewable technology, to reduce fossil fuel-based energy consumption in residential buildings supplied through DHNs.
