Abstract

Reduction in energy consumptions and CO2 emissions and increase in the use of renewable energy sources can be reached through large scale implementation of energy efficiency measures. In urban contexts, district heating (DH) systems are expected to allow integration of waste heat and thermal renewable sources. In this work we propose a GIS-based model for the technical feasibility analysis of possible expansions of existing DH networks. The application to the City of Turin is presented as a case study.
