4th vs 5th: The Battle of the Generations

Wednesday 5th May 2021 | 09:45 – 11:00 Technology & Development

Session Description:

In recent years the concept of 5th generation district energy has emerged in scientific literature and it is increasingly being used in the sector. But despite all the hype, we are nowhere close to reaching a consensus on what the term really means. Does 5th generation DHC have a proper definition and specific defining features or is it just a variant of the 4th generation, bolstered by marketing hype? If any session is going to start an argument, it’s this one!
