District heating

District heating consists of a heat source, such as a power plant or a waste incineration. Through a distribution network, the heat is transported to the user. In the Netherlands, many homes and buildings are already connected to large-scale district heating networks.

The use of waste heat is an effective way to improve energy efficiency. For this reason and in order to meet the growing demand for cooling, the SolabCool system was developed. Because SolabCool can cool with heat the district heating companies have the ability to use heat even in the summer.

Key Benefits SolabCool

  • Growing demand for sustainable cooling in homes and buildings.
  • Increase efficiency in summer by utilization of heat.
  • Large CO2 savings potential through waste heat utilization.
  • Cooling can be provided within existing district heating networks.
  • Cooling at a lower cost than conventional air conditioning.
  • Installation is possible per customer and / or property.

Increase efficiency

By utilization of the SolabCool system district heating companies have a way of using heat also in the summer. Using heat to cool down, this heat is used efficiently and sustainably.

Reduction CO2 emissions

Cooling with air conditioning ensures a substantial growth of CO2 emissions which keeps growing annually. This can be reduced significantly by the use of SolabCool products.

Energy Efficience Directive

The European Commission imposes requirements on the promotion by the EU Member States, the use of waste heat from the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). If projects are technically and economically feasible, a Member State is obliged to promote its execution. Waste heat can be very usefully implemented for district heating.
