District Energy Network Planning and Design Solution

District energy is the collective term for district heating and cooling (DHC). It involves the transport of heat and cooling services to customers from a central source via a network of insulated pipes.  You can rely on Bentley to help your utility meet the demand for more efficient and sustainable services. 

Our District Energy Network Planning and Design solution is specifically designed to manage the complete lifecycle of district energy network infrastructure.
