Title: 2017 Techno-economics for larger heating and cooling technologies


This study provides data and projections for large-scale District Heating (DH) technologies including an outlook till 2050 and regional differences. It covers key parameters needed for technical and economic assessments of the energy technologies and for systemic modelling activities, e.g. efficiency, financial data (CAPEX, OPEX), emissions of pollutants (CO2, SO2, NOX, particles etc). Examples of technologies covered are boilers, electric resistance heating, geothermal, solar thermal, heat pumps, CHP, and fuel cells. It complements a study on smaller heating and cooling technologies.
