Thermal networks of the 4th generation form an important part of EnergyVille's thermal research. Thermal networks of the 4th generation are low temperature networks balancing heat/cold production with local demand. These thermal networks will have an important impact on reducing the primary energy use (for heat/cold) by harvesting waste-heat  and complementing it with renewable energy sources. 


More info about 4th generation thermal networks can be found in this presentation given by Lieve Helsen, Dirk Saelens, David Lagrou and Ann Wouters.
