A number of prospective heating solutions were investigated as candidates for application in future residential buildings. A target consumption assumed 75% less energy as compared with standard solution today (33 vs. 130 kWh/m2). The best-fitting and cost-effective district heating (DH) solution was searched and compared with life-cycle costs of other technologies popular today. Cost effectiveness of the energy saving measures depends on energy prices and on the pricing policy of the district heating companies. The reduction in heating demand and the resulting increased share of domestic warm water in the total heat load will pose a challenge for future DH network design. Therefore, co-ordinated designing of complete areas with appropriate sizing of pipes appears to have pronounced importance.
