Heat networks provide a high efficiency, low cost option for energy supply based on combined heat and power concepts. Analysis of heat networks performance and deployment of smart heating technologies are mainly applied in heat networks in social housing settings within the cities of Southampton and Portsmouth.
Developing and improving heating networks is key to reduce energy bills and reduce carbon emissions. The EU-funded €5.5M THERMOSS project includes the following:
- Monitor & analyse the efficiency of domestic heat networks.
- Contribute to the wider deployment of advanced building heating technologies, increasing the energy efficiency of residential buildings.
- Develop control optimisation strategies, and identify residents’ needs assuring their comfort.
