Local Heating network: decentralized feed-in solar heating network
The deZONNET heat network is a local heat network for new construction and the transformation of existing gas-fired to fossil free neighborhoods. All houses have Triple Solar PVT solar panels on their roof and supply electricity and source heat to a heat pump. There is heat left over in the summer: this heat is dissipated via a heat network and stored in the soil in the ATES (Heat Cold Storage). In the winter, when the PVT heat pump panels do not provide sufficient heat for the heat pump, the stored heat is extracted from the soil and supplied to the heat pumps in the homes via the heat network. This not only leads to a natural fossil free solution, but also to an immediate maximum saving of CO₂.
