Waste heat valorisation in district heating and cooling


A new challenge:

In 2024, Paris will host the Olympic and Paralympic Games. The goal of the organisation committee is to organise the most environmentally responsible games to date. In this way, the Olympic village, located 7 km north of Paris, will be a model of sustainable development with 100 % use of renewable energies.

This year, the Summer School students were asked to imagine and pre-design thermal systems for the Olympic village to answer the heating and cooling demand by using local waste heat sources. A simulation tool and data were shared to help the teams, which presented their work to an expert jury.

The team composed by R√©gis Delubac (UPPA, France), Anahita Farsaei (Aalto University, Finland), Gediminas Menkevińćius (JSC ‚ÄěKauno energija‚Äú, Lithuania), Ulrich Trabert (Universit√§t Kassel, Germany) and Yelena Vorobey (E.ON SE, Germany) won the competition with their project which put customers at core of the solution.
