The goal of the study is to design a preliminary project of the 4th generation district heating system using only renewable energy sources and seasonal heat accumulation for the Upper Nitra region.
The Slovak Republic has international obligations within the energy sector with respect to the need for adaptation and mitigation of climate change, as well as overall development in the heating sector. It makes the switch to higher generation district heating systems extremely important. Preliminary designs offered in this study after an appropriate completion could serve as a demonstration pilot project. It will show that such systems can be implemented in Slovakia as well.
The W4RES Project partner Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart (Germany) provided support to the team in establishing a transformation strategy for heating networks and regional heat planning in general.
