A central heating network or District Heating is a hot water supply system for sanitary and heating uses (and in some cases also refrigeration), providing its services to different buildings from one central plant. The heat produced in this plant is delivered to the users for consumption through a network of pre-insulated and buried pipes.
The District Heating project with biomass boilers developed by the Municipality of Todolella (Spain) was awarded during the National Energy Awards organised by the Spanish Association of Energy Agencies (EnerAgen), of which IVACE is a member. This system is the first one with these characteristics in the Valencia region.
This initiative helps domestic economies since savings related to tariffs of diesel fuel accounts for around 60%. This also means an increase in the value of the properties which adopt this heating system.
