IEA DHC Annex TS5 is an international cooperation project focussing on the integration of Renewable Energy Sources into existing District Heating and Cooling systems (RES DHC) with focus on large-scale solar thermal, central heat pumps, renewable P2H-systems, biomass, geothermal and large heat stores in combination with CHP and surplus heat.
The overall aim of this cooperation is to address R&D challenges related to this topic, in order to establish renewable heat sources as environmentally friendly and emission-free heat generation technologies for the DHC sector.
The specific objectives of the task-shared annex are:
- Gain knowledge about and develop enhanced solutions for the technical and operational integration of RES plants into existing traditional and modern DHC systems
- Provide practical know-how on RES DHC project development, technical solutions and business cases to the DHC market actors
- Develop and show-case innovative demo cases driven by DHC market actors and in cooperation with RES market actors (for both, technical and organizational solutions)
- Develop advanced instruments addressing non-technical market barriers and opportunities
The project lifetime is January 2021 to December 2024. In this period regular meetings are held for advancing with the Annex TS5 work plan.
