Heat sharing network
A heat sharing network is: ‘…a network at a low temperature that can be used to share heat between floors of buildings, or between different buildings. E.g. an office building’s air conditioning system can reject heat an ambient loop, (rather than atmosphere), this heat can then be used by a neighbouring residential development.’
