ANY QUESTIONS
PROBLEM
STATEMENT

Designing a District Energy System
Identify major fuel sources
Design energy distribution network
Identify methods of distribution
Propose methods of integration into houses
ENGINEERING
TARGETS
Major Engineering Requirements for the Project
Model Target Audience and Scale:
100 houses
2000 sq.ft average area per house
Consumption per house 25kW daily
Electricity Production:
30 kW daily
Heat Production:
15 MJ daily
CUSTOMER
REQUIREMENTS
Major considerations while generating and selecing concepts
Cost Effectiveness
Reliability
Convenience
Availability
Environmentally Friendly
MAJOR
CHALLENGES

Generation of Energy:
Sources of Fuel
Consistensy and Availability
Distribution of Energy:
Minimum changes to present infrastructure
Retrofit to existing houses with an economic return
Integration into houses:
proposing a cost effective and efficient solution
CONCEPT
EXPLANATION
Involved Concepts and Ideas
CONCEPT
GENERATION

Considered concepts and possible designs
GENERATION
Biomass as primary fuel. Main Biomass source used is Wood Chips. The advantages include:
Cost Effective
Readily Available in Port Perry
Efficient Production
DISTRIBUTION

Using Storm drains as main option. The reasons include:
Least changes to infrastructure
Cost effective
Available in most areas
INTEGRATION
Replacing the current furnace system with an economic incentive.
Appealing incentive plan
Most convenient
Reversible and no damage to ducts
FINAL
MODEL
Generation:
Single Source
Cogeneration
Trigeneration
Advantages of Co/Tri Generation:
Superior Efficiency
Cost Effective

Generation of Energy (Electricity+Heaitng+Cooling):
Biomass Fuel Source
Wind and Solar energy as fuel sources
Distribution of Energy:
Using storm drains to transport to housing societies
Adding a piping system to the present infrastructure
Incorporation of Energy into houses:
Retrofitting the incoming heat using heat pumps
Replacing furnace system with economic incentive
