Summary to the handbook about district heating

District heating and hot water systems are an important source of energy in Ukraine. If we consider district heating (DH) as a tool for improving energy efficiency and environmental friendliness, its potential is hard to overestimate. Modernizing one boiler house and heating networks is much
easier than replacing thousands of individual boilers. The development of centralized heating and hot water supply systems in Ukraine occurred during the massive construction years of 1950-1990. Obviously, their networks and facilities are worn out and do not meet both Ukrainian and Western European requirements. Losses in district heating networks can reach 20-30%.
