Thermal Energy Networks: An Overview and Project Examples
Approved for 1 LU from AIA
Using heat pumps to electrify heating and cooling is a common approach to decarbonizing buildings. To achieve the goals of the Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, New York State must quickly move from a building-by-building approach to a community-by-community approach. Heat pumps can be integrated with a network of distribution pipes to serve multiple buildings, in a configuration referred to as a Thermal Energy Network (TEN).
This presentation will provide an overview of NYSERDA’s Community Heat Pump Systems program (PON 4614) to support feasibility studies, design, and construction of TEN projects and highlight examples of projects participating in the program.
