What we do

With our heatbeat Digital Twin we simulate and optimize the dynamic operation of district heating and cooling networks together with the connected buildings and supplies. We support you from the initial idea for new district heating networks to the long-term operation of existing networks.

Abbild: Digitaler Zwilling

Our heatbeat Digital Twin is modular and thus very flexible. Based on the available information we create a digital representation of your energy system, from which we derive dynamic simulation models tailored precisely to your requirements and real-world challenges.

plan BEW

Creation of an optimal transformation plan for your district heating network with our Digital Twin.

The conceptual design, planning and operation of district heating and cooling systems are becoming increasingly complex. The integration of renewable energies and waste heat sources at different temperature levels, the active integration of buildings as part of the energy system, increasing decentralization of energy conversion and the coupling of the electricity and heat sectors greatly increase the importance of planning and optimizing these systems holistically.

It is no longer sufficient to look at the individual components of a district heating supply system. Instead, the buildings, heat distribution and energy conversion must be considered as an integral system. Also the use of monthly or even annual energy balances is no longer feasible when integrating renewable energies and storages.

At heatbeat, we represent all components of a district heating network in our Digital Twin. We gather all available information and feed it into to our database. For missing data, we have a broad foundation to make assumptions verified in our completed projects. Our methods allow for the automated generation and simulation of dynamic models for buildings, thermal networks and energy supplies.

Depending on the specific use case, we can tailor simulation models from simplified to very detailed representations of the actual system. Our simulation models are validated, have already been used in many successful projects and are constantly being improved further. If desired, we can provide you the results of our Digital Twin online on an interactive website so that you can access the results and our input data at any time. Like this, we create full transparency for the results and provide the foundation for our high-quality consultation on your project.

If you have any further questions regarding our services or see potential for cooperation, we are looking forward to hearing from you:
