Apartment innovations 1: fifth generation heat networks

Topic: heating, District heating, heat network, Net zero, Domestic hot water, Low temperature heat network, Fifth generation, 5th generation, Regulation

Fifth-generation heat network technology uses disseminated energy sources and low flow temperatures, enabling utilisation of multiple waste heat sources and limiting heat energy lost from piping. It may make heat networks efficient enough for some apartment blocks although heat networks need to be regulated to...
