District heating (DH) uses centralised sources to deliver heat in a more efficient manner, helping you to reduce costs, reduce emissions and meet renewable energy targets. To find out more about installing a network, contact CTEC today.
An alternative to conventional heating boilers
A Combined Heat and Power Gasification system from CTEC Energy, can provide heat and power to multiple customers in a district heating network whilst cutting carbon, reducing energy usage and saving users money. A district heating scheme enables the transport of heat to a range of end users through an efficient network of insulated pipes. Distribution networks can provide heat across cities, towns, villages, industrial or residential with a high demand for heating services.
The CTEC system in ideally suited for the district heat application, it is small and highly efficient. The whole system is contained into a typical existing industrial building with only a 2.5m high plastic vent exiting from the roof line.
Large scale district heating is typically limited to urban areas. Small decentralised heating plants are an option for residential or rural areas. If district heating uses heat that otherwise would be lost, the reduction of dioxin emissions is the result of lowered fuel consumption. With respect to dioxin emissions, the reduction potential of district heating is enormous. Replacement of conventional Domestic Boilers by district heating results in an enormous reduction of emissions. District heating also offers flexibility with reduction is heating bills by 50% with reduces carbon emissions. District heating systems may be supplemented with behind the meter electrical supply for even greater emissions and electricity reduction for the home owner, by also using the waste from homes and gardens.
