The IEA DHC deals with the design, performance and operation of distribution systems and consumer installations. The work programme is mostly carried out through joint, cost-shared activities. Some task-sharing (in-kind contributions) activities are also underway. Drawing on this work, country- or application-specific case studies are highlighted. More information about annexes and case studies can be found on this page and its subpages.
Activities in the IEA DHC/CHP are organized into a series of Annexes. These Annexes contain several research projects. In the cost-shared Annexes these research projects are funded by the countries participating in the Annex (current: Annex XI). The task-shared Annex (Annex TS1) allows to connect existing national projects via an international platform. Thus national projects can benefit from international experience and exchange.
In the category "Annexes" the projects are sorted by Annex, while in the category "Research Projects" the projects are listed by topic and year. In the category "Case Studies" you find some examples of innovative DHC application. In the category "External Links" we have collected a choice of Reports, Software and other information that could be useful for parties interested in DHC.
