  • Build a strong business case by comparing multiple scenarios
  • Create high-level masterplans for large areas
  • Discover the best clusters to deploy your network
  • Select the most interesting customers without exceeding the source capacity

Planning and designing a district heating network is complex and time consuming. It is nonetheless an essential step, since deployment is expensive, and disruptive to the local community. It is crucial to execute a feasibility study, as your business case is based on these numbers. In this phase you compare multiple designs based on different assumptions to decide which areas are the most valuable for deployment.

Comsof Heat dimensions the network pipe system. The technical parameters such as temperature settings, pressure levels, pipe parameters and the cost of each network component can be modified using a configuration manager.

When all is set and calculated, simply assess the results on an area map. In the bill of materials, provided in Excel, Comsof Heat offers a comprehensive overview of all pipe system lengths and network deployment costs.

Comsof Heat is available as plug-in for industry standard GIS applications and is compatible with Google Earth and Google Street View.
