District Heating Design and Optimisation

District Heating 4_district-heating-article-logos - 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 such work for University of Bristol and Lancaster University and recently tendered to University of East Anglia for a 25-year Energy Strategy including a study of the existing DHS.

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 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."
