District Heating Design and Optimisation

District Heating 4_20-img-200x265-09 - Peter Hawtin - peterh Systems (DHS) represent a massive infrastructure investment and huge annual running costs yet they are frequently:

  • badly designed
  • wasting a high percentage of the energy that they consume
  • assumed to efficient when they are not remotely so
  • treated as a “black box” that nobody on site understands
  • modified over decades by people who don’t understand what they are doing
  • assumed to be a “good thing” regardless of whether they are the best solution

We regularly have to unpick shocking bad design by big name M&E consultancies or suppliers cutting corners to reduce costs.

The Green Consultancy offers the highest level of expertise to optimise existing systems or design new ones or extensions:

  • thorough survey and forensic study
  • comprehensive analysis of all relevant data using superior EU standards
  • thermal/hydraulic modelling using software developed and tested on numerous DHS over many years

We have carried out DHS optimisation and re-design work for University of Bristol and Lancaster University

If you are considering a new DHS or an extension, or want to improve the efficiency of your existing system, please call John Treble, to discuss your requirements, on 01761 419081, or email John@GreenConsultancy.com

District Heating Redesign for University of Bristol

“The Green Consultancy redesigned the District Heating System at our Langford site to dramatically improve its energy efficiency. Their consultant gave a clear and concise explanation of the new design and answered all questions from the team charged with progressively implementing and commissioning the new design in a way that fully inspires our confidence in the results. At last we have someone who understands CHP and thermal stores, rather than having just read about them in a book and made up a design as they go along!”

District Heating System Feasibility Studies for Lancaster University

"I have been consistently impressed by the level of skill, understanding and capabilities of The Green Consultancy. They have delivered a very insightful BMS health check, and subsequently a very thorough and robust set of proposals for our district heating system which helps make the system fit for the next 50 years. I look forward to continuing to work with The Green Consultancy, as we move to a low carbon future."

Jan Bastiaans, Energy Manager
