This is a 4 part policy-orientated study that will provide much needed information to the public and private sectors, aswell as guidance to policy makers for the effective development and deployment of district heating (DH) networks in Irish towns and cities. The project will develop 3 in-depth, comprehensive case studies of established and successful Irish DH networks. Separately, a Techno-Economic Assessment (TEA) of 3 potential opportunity sites for DH developments and a high value guidance manual outlining a step-by-step approach to establishing DH in Ireland will be developed.
With a focus on information sharing and capacity building, the project team will disseminate the guidance manual and related information and host a DH Conference aimed at public agencies, local authorities and local and national decision makers.
