Short description: Currently district heating network losses are 21% and are described as 3rd generation. We are looking to decrease losses at least up to 16% using innovative real time grid control strategy. Also 4th generation district heating network should be reached.
Market potential: The business process of district heating companies are standard, so solution would be scalable. At least EU market size of solution for district heating and cooling could reach 50 million Eur.
Timing: We are ready implement solution as soon as possible due to high primary fuel price, CO2 emission requirements.
Desired result: Reduce heat losses form 21% up to at least 16% average per year. The service should be active 24/7. Service should provide grid control setpoints for dispatch center in real time.
Information on challenge owner: Mid-size SME (50-259 staff).
Market presence of challenge owner: Active in one country.
