Mapping district heating potential under evolving thermal demand scenarios and technologies: A case study for Switzerland

Mapping district heating potential for Switzerland. Areas where district heat systems could be applied were estimated using current demand, future demand under a 50% reduction scenario, and future demand assuming spatially resolved retrofit potential. High temperature and Low temperature heat network technologies were considered. This dataset contains raster representations of potential DHN areas, encoded as integer values denoting whether a given pixel could be a potential district heat network for a given technology and retrofit scenario.
