Description

In Tübingen, district heating is a modern and environmentally friendly form of heat supply. The district heating system of the Stadtwerke Tübingen (swt) is steadily growing. At the same time the swt invests in a steady improvement of efficiency and ecological quality of the supplied heat. In the frame of this policy, the feasibility of an transformation of the district heating system “Südstadt” into a “District Heating 4.0 System” shall be demonstrated.

Client

Stadtwerke Tübingen

Partner

  • Stadtwerke Tübingen
  • Steinbeis Research Institute Solites
  • Engineering Office Sailer
  • Engineering Office Bieg
  • GeoTerton Engineering Office for Applied Geology
  • Data Centre for Supply Networks Wehr GmbH

Aim

Within this study concepts shall be developed resulting in high shares of solar thermal energy for the district heating “Südstadt” and following the broad requirements of the funding program “District Heating 4.0” which is provided by the German Office of Econimcs and Export Control.

Implementation

The study comprises following concepts:

  • Lowering of network temperatures
  • Integration of solar thermal energy
  • Integration of large-scale heat stores
  • Digitalisation
  • Holistic operation concept

Results

The results will be elaborate in a feasibility study for the swt.
