A district energy system transports heated or chilled water from one or more larger energy production plants to a range of consumers through a closed network of pipes.
Improve efficiency and reduce costs with a district energy system
Pumps are the heart of any district energy system. They have a severe influence on how efficiently other individual components in a district energy system work. That is why pump selection is crucial when designing a district energy system. A district energy system is a flexible solution that effectively makes use of a variety of sustainable energy sources.
Accurately controlled circulation is key to user comfort and the general efficiency of the system. With variable frequency drive pumps, you get intelligent pump operations that always match system loads. That way, you are guaranteed maximum efficiency while your energy consumption is kept at a minimum. On top of that, there are plenty of optimisation opportunities, including real-time sensoring and temperature control.
Grundfos iSOLUTIONS brings a new level of intelligence to pump systems in district energy networks with solutions that look beyond individual components and optimise the entire system.
Powered by our deep understanding of water, Grundfos iSOLUTIONS delivers intelligent pumps, cloud connectivity and digital services that enable better network control, overview and SCADA integration. So, whether it’s heating or cooling, you can reach a new level of system efficiency.
