Local thermal networks
Thermal networks provide buildings and surrounding areas with a low carbon energy source that is generated from a central location.
Through thermal networks energy is converted into hot water and pumped through a network of underground pipes often to heat exchangers in buildings of all sizes and types.
The heat required for thermal networks is typically provided by electric or gas boilers or the cogeneration process. Thermal networks powered by gas fuel sources are a cleaner and more efficient way of delivering heating and cooling. It can help to deliver higher green star ratings and reduce the space requirements of central plant in individual buildings or the negative aesthetics of outdoor package units.
Flow Systems is working with clients to design bespoke thermal networks that meet the unique needs of new communities.
