Termonet is a new concept based on the use of
individually adjustable and collectively managed ground
source heat pumps, connected to a thermal grid with noninsulated piping supplying heating/cooling demand of
households located far from existing district heating grid
(GeoDrilling, 2017; Pellegrini and Bianchini, 2018).
Production and consumption profiles from Termonet
dynamic simulations using an object-oriented modelling
approach are compared to insulated ground source and
district heating networks with extra-small consumer
density encountered at test sites in Denmark. The
hypothesis of the reduced production requirements in
Termonet is tested and the identified pros and cons
indicate the direction for small-scale thermal grid
development with emphasis on efficiency and control.
