District heating

District heating is a form of heating that involves the distribution through insulated (underground) pipe networks of hot, overheated water or steam from a generating plant to urban centres.

One of the most important features of district heating is that it reduces CO2 and saves energy and money.

In addition, district heating systems can be combined with a generating unit powered by natural gas or renewable energy, involving the use of cogeneration. Through this important integration, a twofold benefit is achieved; the energy mix becomes more environmentally friendly and there is an increase in the efficiency of the energy system.

Benefits:

ENVIRONMENT

District heating enables the improvement of quality of air through the reduction of pollutants and gases for a greenhouse effect.

Heat

SAVINGS

District heating is a cheaper alternative with savings in utility bills.

Heat

SAFETY

District heating uses safer technologies that eliminate the combustion-related hazards inside boilers.

Heat

RATIONALISATION

District heating promotes rational use of energy resources with a focus on reducing fossil fuel consumption and local pollution.

Heat

PERFORMANCE

District heating involves improving the energy performance of Buildings (APE) resulting in an increase in the economic value of property.

Heat

MAINTENANCE

District heating allows a reduction in ordinary and extraordinary maintenance costs.

Who it is for:

CONDOMINIUMS

Buildings and condominiums with central heating that still use old boilers, they lend themselves well to the introduction of a connection to the district heating network in order to lower the level of pollutant emissions. The service makes it possible to eliminate the depreciation cost of the old boiler system and also to reduce that of the Fire Safety Certificate.

PUBLIC ADMINISTRATIONS

All state and public administrations, including the institutes and schools of all levels and educational institutions, contemplating enormous heat and energy expenditure and which,
through this alternative energy supply system,can reduce their own costs on their bills. An increasing number of mayors and regional delegates are inclined to undertake work to connect public buildings to the district heating network in order to contribute to the reduction of CO2 emissions, to prepare for the goals set forth in Agenda 2030.

HOTELS

Tour operators increasingly continue to prefer green solutions, both to cut down on utility bills of their large, medium or small facilities both to reduce the CO2 emissions responsible for climate change and offer their customers the opportunity to experience environmentally sustainable travel whilst fully respecting the environment.

SWIMMING POOLS

The use of huge amounts of water, especially in receptive facilities such as swimming pools, requires a very high energy expenditure. Opting for a connection to the district heating network allows us to reduce expenses incurred and avoid costly and frequent plant maintenance with the boiler.

INDUSTRIES

Companies can contribute through the renovation of their own energy supply systems to the reduction of emissions of CO2 with a consequent reduction in the cost of the Fire Safety Certificate and maintenance of the facilities, as well as quieter primary parts.

CONDOMINI

Palazzi e casermoni con riscaldamento centralizzato che ancora si servono di vecchie caldaie e che quindi ben si prestano all’introduzione di un allaccio alla rete di teleriscaldamento al fine di abbassare il livello delle emissioni inquinanti. Il nostro servizio permette di eliminare il costo di ammortamento del vecchio impianto a caldaia e di ridurre anche quello del CPI.

PUBBLICHE AMMINISTRAZIONI

Tutte le amministrazioni statali e pubbliche, ivi compresi gli istituti e scuole di ogni ordine e grado e le istituzioni educative, che contemplano un enorme dispendio termico ed energetico e che, grazie a questo sistema di alimentazione energetica alternativo, possono ridurre i propri costi di bolletta. Un numero sempre più alto di sindaci e delegati regionali sono propensi ad intraprendere lavoro per allacciare gli edifici pubblici alla rete di teleriscaldamento al fine di contribuire alla riduzione delle emissioni di CO2, in prospettiva degli obiettivi prospettati nell’Agenda 2030.

ALBERGHI

Gli operatori del settore turistico continuano sempre più a prediligere soluzioni green, sia abbattere i costi delle bollette delle loro grandi, medie o piccole strutture sia per ridurre le emissioni di CO2 responsabili del cambiamento climatico ed offrire ai proprio clienti la possibilità di vivere viaggi ecosostenibili nel pieno rispetto dell’ambiente.

PISCINE

L’impiego di enormi quantità di acqua, soprattutto in strutture ricettive come le piscine, richiedono un dispendio energetico molto alto. Optare per un allaccio alla rete di teleriscaldamento permette di abbassare le spese sostenute ed evitare costose e frequenti manutenzioni dell’impianto con caldaia.

Industrie

Le aziende potranno contribuire mediante il rinnovamento dei propri sistemi di alimentazione energetica alla riduzione delle emissioni di Co2 con una conseguente riduzione del costo del CPI e di manutenzione degli impianti, oltre che una maggiore silenziosità delle parti primarie.

FAQs

District heating is a reliable and efficient form of heating consisting of distribution through networks of insulated (underground) piping of hot water, overheated or steam from a generating plant. Heat is generated by harnessing different energy sources, renewable and non-renewable. District heating enables the reduction of CO2 and thereby energy and economic savings.

District heating is the most sustainable and competitive source of heat. The most recent Italian and European regulations recognise environmental validity and stipulate that all new buildings, constructed less than a kilometre from a network of existing district heating, have the provision to be able to be connected to the network. (Directive 2002/91/EC, transposed by Lgs. decree 192/05 as amended).

Our district heating plants and networks are present in the cities of: Borgaro Torinese (To); Mondovì (CN): Tirano, Sondalo and Santa caterina Valfurva and Grosotto (SO); Peschiera Borromeo (MI); Fidenza (PR); Assisi (PG); Genoa (Liguria); Udine (Friuli-Venezia Giulia).

Connecting a customer to the district heating network involves a series of preliminary activities, starting with the request for a quote from the Customer and ends with the activation of the service supply.

Certainly, we will carry out inspections to assess the best path to be able to extend the district heating network to reach the point of supply.

On average there is a saving of 10% compared to the price of gas.

The tariff is calculated through a formula that is entered into the supply contract, using the price of the fuel that is used to create heat.

If the contract is in the free market, there are no strings attached or penalties. If the contract is protected, there is a contractual obligation for 5 years. In the event of withdrawal, there is a penalty which is proportionate to the connection fee for each year for 5 years.

Replacement of the exchanger is the responsibility of the company supplying the heat.

Yes, district heating is regulated by the gas energy authority (ARERA).

Yes, only for the secondary part of the plant.
