Sewanee: University of the South
What may be the cleanest and most effective way to heat cities is something you've probably never heard of: a process called district heating, or DH.
District energy systems distribute thermal energy (steam, hot water, and/or chilled water) through a network of underground pipes to multiple buildings in an area, such as a downtown district, college or hospital campus, airport, or military base.... Read More
