  15. 15. What is District Energy<br />Various configurations of diverse sets of components<br />Integrated perspective on energy demands of buildings<br />Tailored to local circumstances and opportunities<br />Range of scales – larger are more flexible and efficient<br />GHG emissions abatement, affordable heat, energy security, local regeneration<br />
  16. 16. Spatio-temporal configuration<br />Where is heat demand high and dense?<br />How do temporal profiles compare?<br />Where can pipes be laid?<br />What heating systems are inside buildings<br />How long are buildings tied into current arrangements?<br />Where are new buildings being built?<br />How long can sources and subscribers be relied on?<br />…<br />
  17. 17. Local Energy Governance and Organisation<br />Technical components<br />Users and producers (e.g. attitudes and inertia)<br />Local and cosmopolitan actors with different goals<br />Local authority departments (energy, planning, legal, &c)<br />Finance<br />Governance model<br />Business model<br />Legal constraints<br />Local quasi-regulatory structures<br />Electricity markets<br />…<br />
  18. 18. District energy champions inter alia<br />Need to understand and plan spatial layout of heat sources and demand on long timescales<br />Think big, start small<br />Build awareness and legitimacy for heat network among range of stakeholders<br />Recruit knowledge and financial resources<br />Are embedded in developing policy, infrastructure and market contexts<br />
