The STORM project copes with energy efficiency at district level. STORM will develop and demonstrate a generic district heating and cooling (DHC) network controller with the ambition to increase the use of waste heat and renewable energy sources in DHC networks. The controller will be demonstrated in two existing grids: one highly innovative low-temperature DHC network in the Netherlands and a more common medium-temperature district heating grid in Sweden. Innovative business models will be developed to distribute this value amongst the different market players (producers, transporters, consumers of energy).

Sigma Orionis leads the Dissemination, Communication and Exploitation activities.
