Recovering heat excess
District heating nets are subjected to ambient conditions. They must generate enough heat in the winter and respond to a variable heat consumption during the year due to seasonal changes in ambient temperatures (winter vs. summer). In most cases, heat excess is simply dumped (except in the winter). We can do better.
The ORC converts the heat excess into electricity instead of dumping it. This not only eliminates the costs for energy dumping, but also generates green electricity for the site or the grid. A double profit!
