A district heating system is an infrastructure asset where thermal energy is provided to buildings from centralized energy plants. Hot water or steam is generated at the plant and is circulated underground utilizing a highly insulated thermal piping network. The thermal energy is directly transferred to the heating system of the building thereby, avoiding the need for boiler in individual buildings. The heat supply via district heating is produced in an eco-friendly way, which reduces the effect of greenhouse gas emissions. Primarily heat sources for a typical district heating system are CHP, waste to energy, other industrial process that holds excess heat or heat as biproduct. As these systems usually avoids ordinary primary energy supply and prefers mainly recovered heat, hence DH systems can be characterized as economy of scope instead of economy of size. The study features a detailed analysis of district heating system installation scenarios on a global scale segmented on a regional & country basis residential, commercial and industrial applications. Moreover, the forecasts and estimates are in line with data represented by authorities including the IEA, EU, EIA, regulatory bodies and, company press releases.

Rising concerns toward increasing GHG emissions will boost the deployment of co-generation/CHP plants

Combined Heat & Power (CHP) district heating market predominantly accounts for the majority market share across the global district heating industry. Cogeneration technology due to its high sustainability is as one of the most economical solution for district heating systems. Minimal losses, high sustainability and enhanced energy supply efficiency are few underlying factors favoring the installation of CHP based DHS across the globe. The penetration of cogeneration based DHS is high across the countries such as Germany, Denmark, and the U.S. where CHP plays more significant role in electricity and heat generation. In these countries CHP and district heating has already become an important part of regional & national GHG emission reduction strategy. Utilization of waste heat and high system efficiency are some of the paramount factors favoring the installation of these systems over the forecast timeline.

Increasing urbanization will drive the residential DHS revenue

Over the last few years, the urbanization rate has witnessed a significant rise due to rising per capita income and inclination toward high standard of living. For instance, as per the United Nations, in 2018, the global urban population has reached over 50% and is anticipated to reach 68% by 2050. The ongoing migration trends from rural to urban regions has witnessed unprecedented hike from the past decade which has resulted in increased investments across the real estate industry, which in turn will positively influence the DH demand. In addition, shifting trends toward the integration of smart home applications and monitoring systems including energy management systems will drive the district heating market size over the forecast timeline. In addition the growing application of decentralized generators coupled with rising investments in the real estate sector will significantly influence the installation of these systems size over the forecast timeline.

North America DHS market is predominantly characterized by dense urban areas & localities with a high penetration of commercial buildings & establishments. Due to its capital-intensive nature majority of real estate developers across the region are reluctant on the installation of  DH systems. The demand in the current situation is inclined toward the deployment of low-cost systems that hold significant ROI. Over the past decade combined heat & power (CHP) integrated DHS systems has gained significant prominence on account of their ability to supply heat in an economic manner. The unique opportunity to provide both power & heat and serve the energy demand of multiple customers has further increased their deployment across the region. Over the coming years, the adoption of renewable technology is expected to enhance the region’s district heating market size at a significant rate. In addition, government focus toward the adoption of sustainable technologies will further augment the technology demand substantially.
