Renovation of buildings and construction of new near-zero-emission buildings relate to the creation of low heat consumption density areas in cities. The article analyses the potential development scenarios of existing DH system by implementing multi-generative systems in such areas. The methodology is based on multi-criteria analysis allowing for energy, economic, exergy, and environmental (4E) assessment.
