TARO – Low temperature district heating: Energetic optimization based on dynamic simulations

Low temperature district heating networks, in which borehole fields serve as seasonal storage on a low temperature level for efficient decentralized heat pumps, are emulated in dynamic simulations. Based on the analyses of existing networks, means for optimizing the energy efficiency by global regulation strategies or the use of new renewable energy sources will be proposed.


This project receives funding from the Swiss Federal Office of Energy SFOE and is carried out in cooperation with the industry partners Amstein+Waltert AG and Vela Solaris AG.
