District Heating and Cooling R&D Project Review
Project Downloads and Links
Information Exchange is an important part of the activities in the International Energy Agency (IEA) District Heating Project. As a part of this activity a R&D Project Review was prepared. Under Annex II the first District Heating and Cooling R&D Projects Review based on contributions from the member countries was published in 1989 (Report 1989 R1).
This first review contained 258 R&D projects covering almost all aspects of district heating and cooling.
In 1991 the Executive Committee decided to up-date the R&D Project Review including R&D projects where the major topic is District Heating and Cooling (DH&C) and combined heat and power (CHP) covering all aspects including:
- energy conversion
- transportation (transmission and distribution)
- operation and maintenance.
The objectives of this second R&D review are:
- to inform about R&D activities in the member countries
- to inspire to contact between researchers working with the same field to reduce parallel work
- to maximize the benefits of national work.
The participants in the IEA District Heating Project have contributed to the review as follows:
Federal Republic of Germany
Total number of R&D projects
The review is available in printed format. The projects are sorted according to country and within the each country according to the first key word. Looking up a specific topic is best done by means of the key word index in the back of the book.
The full text of this review and of the first review published in 1989 are also available on 3,5" (1.44 MB) diskette in ASCII format. The diskette can be ordered from the Operating Agent.
An example of a project summary is available.
