The global district heating industry is driven by the implementation of district heating in smart cities. Smart cities are considered an urban development vision, which aims to transform the cities with the help of data-driven solutions by integrating connectivity between facilities, infrastructure, and citizens to manage the needs of urban areas. Even though developments are taking place rapidly in the smart cities project, a few challenges such as an increase in population, global warming, and rising demand for resources still need to be addressed. The district heating network, along with district cooling, remains a crucial infrastructure for the decarbonization of cities. When compared with the individual systems for heating, the district heating networks provide several advantages such as cost-efficiency and fewer emissions. For instance, high-capacity chillers or boilers can perform more efficiently when placed at centralized locations.

Inclination of Governments toward Renewables in District Heating Systems will be a Key Market Trend

Space and water heating accounted for the majority of end uses of power in buildings and process heat in industries. The source for the heat is dominated by fossil fuels, which has made decarbonization of heat generation a priority in mitigating climate change. District heating networks powered by renewable sources of energy can result in a significant reduction in emissions as well as empowering the nations to achieve their emission control targets. To increase the share of renewables in heat generation, some countries have imposed mandatory obligations and incentives, such as grants, subsidies, and energy taxes. For instance, several state-level incentives and programs have been implemented for increasing the share of renewables in heat production. In New York, residential customers are eligible to receive an incentive of up to USD1,500-2,000 for income-qualified homeowners.
