Key2® Energy Networks

Comparative analysis of CO2 emission reduction scenarios for a heating network

WHY ?
  •  District heating network location and performance overview within a territory
  • Identification of the future areas to be served by existing heating networks and opportunities to create new networks
  • Development, assessment and comparison of several prospective scenarios including the development of renewables and heat recovery for a heating network, the evolution of energy consumption, fluctuating energy prices as well as the variable availability of resources
AS PART OF WHICH MISSIONS ?
  • Enhance your Carbon Footprint assessments with a prospective approach combining economic and environmental efficiency
  • Develop the action plan of your Territorial Climate & Energy Plan
  • Integrate an energy dimension into urban planning documents
WHICH APPROACH ?

1. Analysis of energy needs and network location

2. Joint drafting of prospective scenarios for comparison purposes

3. Identification of new areas to be served and new RE&R production ressources
