Facts and figures about the cold heat network in Bad Nauheim (Bad Nauheim Süd)

Uninsulated plastic pipes are used for the heating network. The network does not only supply the buildings with heat to operate the decentralized heat pumps, but also with cooling energy, e.g. for room air conditioning. If heating and cooling demands occur simultaneously, these can be balanced within the 5GDHC network (see also demand balancing in 5GDHC networks). The district comprises new construction areas only. Every building of the district is free to decide whether to connect to the heating network or not; there is no obligation to connect. Detailed data of the 5GDHC network in Bad Nauheim (Bad Nauheim Süd) is listed in Table 1.
