Heat supply station. Powerhouse area of a heat supply station. The heat supply station is supplying heat in the form of hot water flowing through the pipes seen here. The hot water is piped to homes in the surrounding area, instead of each home heating its own water supply. This is the Tushino-5 district heat supply station in Moscow, Russia. Heat supply stations like these are an example of integrated, centralised energy supply. Photographed in 2006.
