Feasibility Study for a Neighbourhood Energy Management System in Trento

Info sheet - 18 Sep 2023

Industry and tertiary sector activities show interesting opportunities of recovering waste heat from productive processes and auxiliary equipment operation. In reduced scale, this kind of activities are widespread distributed in urban and suburban areas so that thermal energy could be easily integrated in local district heating network instead of being wasted in the environment. Waste heat from industry and tertiary sector activities in the Madonna Bianca neighbourhood (Trento South) has been mapped and quantified in order to assess if it is recoverable in the low temperature water loop as useful thermal energy for the heating and domestic hot water (DHW) demand of the 3 residential buildings (the “Towers”) studied in STARDUST.
