The climate agenda, new technologies, and geopolitical uncertainties all affect the energy system. District heating is a hot topic, and energy planners around the world are looking to Denmark for inspiration.
Local heat resources
In the future our homes are heated from a variety of sources. It can be excess heat from data centers, Power-to-X, or Carbon Capture plants. Or the heat source can be local sewage or waste from agriculture.
We help cities and district heating providers plan for the future of district heating.
We gather information about the current heating system and the local resources when we model a district heating area. Based on that we create a local optimization module within one of our national models.
In a collaboration between the client and the modelling team we identify a series of potential paths to a sustainable district heating system.
A COLLECTION OF PATHS
The investment paths are gathered in a final report, which gives the client an overview of the different options.
