About WasteHeatSES

Integration of waste (also called excess or surplus) heat flows into the district heating systems have been identified as a significant complementary driver on the road to climate neutrality by delivering primary energy savings. Unused heat flows could partly cover heat demand if suitable technical and organizational conditions have been met. There have been previous studies on waste heat potential…
