The City of Surrey in British Columbia, Canada operates a district energy network (DEN) that supplies thermal energy for space and water heating to multiple buildings in the Surrey Centre area. The City envisions the DEN as a key development in reaching its greenhouse (GHG) gas emissions reduction targets by integrating low-carbon energy sources. One of the low-carbon energy sources that Surrey can use is harvesting and utilizing waste heat from industrial sites using a mobile thermal energy storage (M-TES) system. In this thesis, a systematic approach has been followed to determine the requirements of M-TES, including a techno-economic analysis (TEA) to determine energy storage density (ESD), costs, and the emissions reduction when integrating waste heat into Surrey's DEN.
