District Heating & Cooling
District heating or heat network enables town/city planners and councils to vastly improve the thermal efficiency of the cities via capturing waste heat energy and accessing renewable energy sources. District heating can make use of wide variety of energy resources including:
Natural heat sources like solar and deep or shallow geothermal heating and cooling systems
Waste heat from commercial/office buildings
Heat from electric power generators,
Heat from sewer and municipal waste incineration
Waste heat from industrial process
Through Geoflow, councils and developers get easy access to a turnkey solution for district heating and cooling. The basic principle of district heating and cooling is simple; at one end of the network is the energy source (geothermal, solar or multi fuel boiler plant). Heat is then distributed through a network of insulated pipes buried under ground surface to residential, commercial and industrial buildings across the network creating a community heating scheme.
