New District Heating System for Wetzikon

Under great time pressure, the city of Wetzikon is working on transforming the city's heat supply using the waste incineration plant in the nearby town of Hinwil as a heat source. To expedite the plan, the town commissioned us to work out the various options for completing the transformation and to coordinate all the various sub-projects of the transformation. The sub-projects included drafting an energy plan, completing a district heating feasibility study, detailing regional responsibilities, and a target network planning for gas.
