ReUseHeat Project - Newsletter #2

Let's not waste heat


We would not throw food away, so why would we waste freely available heat?

ReUseHeat chose to focus on four large scale demonstrators, showing the technical feasibility and economic viability of excess heat recovery and reuse from data centres, sewage collectors, cooling system of a hospital and underground station.

Read our second newsletter to get updates on the project, the four unconventional waste heat sources and the respective demo sites.

Data Centres

The data centre has an extensive cooling demand, producing excess heat - which will be fed to a low temperature district heating network


Underground Transport

Waste heat produced in a metro station will be recovered and reused to provide heating and hot water to an adjacent shopping centre


Waste Water Management

An integrated urban planning concept will include the innovative recovery of waste heat from the neighbourhood's sewage system


Tertiary Buildings

.An advanced solution based on heat recovery from a hospital's cooling production process will be linked to the nearby district heating



Project progress to date

One of the milestones of the project - the identification of the urban waste heat potential - is taking shape. Experts from Halmstad University have collected much of the data needed for their analysis and are close to being able to provide input on the available urban excess heat at the level of geographical coordinates for Europe!


Collecting information on urban excess heat sources

The ReUseHeat project launched a survey aiming to create a very useful tool for identifying the potential of urban excess heat sources. We invite relevant actors and stakeholders across the EU to help us gather available information.


Second ReUseHeat technical workshop in Madrid

The second technical workshop of the ReUseHeat Project took place in Madrid on 12 April 2018.

The workshop was dedicated to waste heat recovery from one of the Madrid hospitals.


Third stop: Brunswick

The third technical workshop of the ReUseHeat project took place in Brunswick, Germany, on 8 May 2018.

The workshop was dedicated to waste heat recovery from a data centre and related topics.


ReUseHeat workshop in Nice

The fourth technical workshop of the ReUseHeat Project took place in Nice on 26 June 2018.

The workshop was dedicated to waste heat recovery from sewage networks and showcased the already existing eco-district.
