Abstract

This work introduces the theory involved in a decentralised energy system, such as a district heating system, going from its implementation and viability to its system performance. Some case studies across Europe have been selected and compared; this comparison demonstrated a lack of results regarding the actual overall performance occurring in a district heating system. The Affordable Housing site located in Suffolk is made up of 26 individual homes with a district heating network supplied with a biomass boiler. This study investigates how well this district heating distributes its heat. A system performance analysis has been performed and its losses determined and introduced.
