FEDARENE Info 45 – Focus on climate adaptation

This Spring 2018 edition features articles on climate adaptation. Because of natural disasters causing great damage on geographical, social and economic levels, energy experts are starting to think about ways to reduce these calamities and to continue the fight against climate change. Wallonia, Skane and Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes are three European regions invested in this fight who developed innovative ways to implement climate adaptation measures on the ground.

Design of consumer thermal substations for the integration of distributed solar technologies in District Heating systems

Victor Sanchez and Roberto Garay, of Tecnalia presents a new consumer substation on the 5th International Solar District Heating Conference.

A Flexible Approach to Deployment & Conversion of DH Net. to Low Temperature, with Increased Use of Solar Systems

District heating (DH) systems are key systems for the de-carbonization of heating energy in European Cities. In order to allow for this transition, while guaranteeing competitive energy costs, conversion of DHs is required. DH operation temperature needs to be reduced in order to increase the performance of renewable systems and operation criteria needs to be adopted for the introduction of weather-dependent, distributed heat sources such as solar systems.
