This chapter focuses mainly on the district and community heating aspects of small CHP systems, the heat sources and control systems and contains issues to be considered before a new district heating system is to be established. Further, this chapter contains some of the preconditions for getting started and overall design considerations. These experiences are based on projects established primarily in Denmark and the UK and with case studies from Aars in Denmark and Lerwick in Shetland.
