Save energy by optimising district heating networks with demand-driven supply
District heating is about efficiently delivering energy to a network of buildings. However, the typical district heating network is often designed and operated to serve the building with the highest demands. This means that the rest of the heat network is supplied with higher temperatures than needed, resulting in significant heat losses.
With Grundfos iGRID, the heat network can be improved with a demand-driven supply offering a considerable return on investment and saving energy every day. Read the brochure to learn more.
Learn how a Danish district heating utility builds a green future with a low temperature zone reducing heat losses by 25%
When Gentofte Gladsaxe District Heating Co. faced expanding their heat network, they challenged themselves to find a sustainable solution that ensured adequate temperatures to all areas of the network. Grundfos provided a solution where temperature zones met the company’s requirement to lower temperatures and at the same time save money and reduce heat losses.

With Grundfos iGRID, there is potential to release free energy for more than 1.3 million European households by effectively reducing heat losses and making it possible to utilise more renewable energy sources, thus significantly reducing carbon emissions in district heating.
Struggling with poorly balanced buildings in the heat network?
With iGRID services, Grundfos delivers a complete building performance package with data analytics, physical building balancing, reporting, plumbing through service partners and even coordination with customers, if desired.
See how to configure iGRID Temperature Zone
Grundfos iGRID Temperature Zone enables lowering of the supply temperature to less demanding zones, based either on the actual demand or pre-set temperature, relevant to the controlled zone and verified by temperature monitoring.
See how to configure iGRID Pressure Zone
Grundfos iGRID Pressure Zone allows for lower local pressures in the heat network by means of decentralised pumps located around the system, which boost the pressure at points where it is actually required and verified by pressure monitoring.

How to reduce carbon emissions with low temperature zones in district heating
We would like to use particular makes of components – is that possible?
Our solutions are based on recognised standard components, but we can customise solutions to accommodate some of your specific wishes; for example, for measuring equipment, valves etc.
What about communication with our existing SCADA system – can we change set points or control pumps from the SCADA system?
Yes, with our cloud solution and/or via a fixed connection we can integrate with your SCADA system and send/receive all inputs and data needed to control and regulate pumps.
We have lots of bypass cabinets – can they be integrated with your equipment?
Yes, you can buy an installation kit for integration in existing cabinets.
What about internet connection to measuring points and bypass cabinets ?
No internet connection is required – all communication with our equipment is via GSM and in the form of real-time data.
