The problem of classic thermal management systems

Traditional heat management systems have a central storage tank, usually a steel buffer tank or stratified tank, in which the water heated by one or more sources ("producers") is stored and transferred to the various consumers as needed.

The water supplied by the different producers is at different temperatures. By mixing the different temperature levels, a lot of energy is lost unnecessarily.

The solution: The Hydrobus

The basic idea: The stratified tank is disposed of and replaced by an intelligent, more efficient solution.

The water from each producer or a storage tank is passed directly to the consumers in individual circuits.

The "hydrobus" acts as a "conductor", so to speak, and dynamically brings producers or storage facilities together with consumers - depending on demand and based on calculated forecast models. In doing so, it makes sure that as little energy as possible energy is lost.

Surplus heat is stored for later use or sold to neighbours.
