ReUseHeat Project - Newsletter #3

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. This H2020 project intends to overcome both technical and non-technical barriers towards the unlocking of urban waste heat recovery investments across Europe.

Read our third newsletter to find out about its first outcomes!

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 in a private district heating network


Waste Water Management

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


Tertiary Buildings

A system based on heat recovery from a hospital's cooling production process will be linked to the nearby district heating


ReUseHeat exchanges experiences with Heat Roadmap Europe 4

On 13 February 2019, ReUseHeat held its first 1/2 day workshop in Brussels, combined with the Heat Roadmap Europe 4 final workshop. The event “Roadmaps are ready: now what?? Exploring the realities of the heat transition” gathered nearly 100 stakeholders from the EU Commission, NGOs, industry, city partners and research institutions, and was a great opportunity to gain feedback on the first ReUseHeat research results.


ReUseHeat meeting and exploitation plan workshop in London

The project consortium met in London, United Kingdom, on 6-7 March 2019 to discuss work progression, synchronise the upcoming deliverables and tasks, as well as to work on the ReUseHeat exploitation plan under the guidance of a SSERR (Support Services for Exploitation of Research Results) expert Andrea di Anselmo.

Additionally, the heat group of Bloomberg came to visit the project to learn more about district heating.


ReUseHeat offers free pre-feasibility studies* !

From 15 April to 15 July 2019, ReUseHeat will re-launch its survey on urban excess heat sources. Entering information in the questionnaire, the participants will be screened and if seen appropriate they will be rewarded with a pre-feasibility study! We invite urban excess heat owners (with particular focus on data centres, sewage water collectors, tertiary sector buildings and underground stations) to take part!
