9.5.14 District Heating & Combined Heat and Power

Dublin City Council has carried out a feasibility study on the implementation of a citywide district-heating network and pro-actively promotes its benefits and encourages its provision.

District heating and Combined Heat and Power (CHP) offer potential for more efficient heating of Dublin’s buildings, through utilising waste heat produced in generating electricity.

The advantages include higher energy efficiency and reduced consumption of energy resources.

Codema’s SEDA study will progress a more detailed understanding of the potential of CHP to achieve efficiencies in different parts of the city.
