Fourth generation district heating system in the Upper Nitra region

The goal of this study was to design a concept of the fourth generation district heating system for the Upper Nitra region using only renewable energy sources and seasonal heat accumulation. This concept should help to design the second phase of the district heating system solution following the first phase which should be in operation in heating season 2023/2024. The reason for elaborating of the second phase concept is that the first phase solution cannot be considered as a long-term solution since it uses fossil fuel and is based on non-optimised heat consumption.
