The District Heating system of Brescia is one of the three demonstration site of the new EU Horizon 2020 TEMPO project (TEMPerature Optimisation for Low Temperature District Heating across Europe).
Our aim is to lower the operating temperatures; main advantages would be:
– reduction of network heat losses (increasing the efficiency of transport and distribution systems);
– increase of system lifetime;
– last but not least, possibility to collect recovery heat from low temperature sources (e.g. renewables, excess heat from industrial processes).
