Danish White Paper on District Energy
This White Paper (2018) draws on competencies built up through more than 100 years of experience with district energy in Denmark and around the world. It highlights some of the main learnings to consider when wanting to expand the use of district energy, such as the system, regulatory framework, planning, efficiency and flexibility of energy source, storage and future perspectives, by including relevant cases from around the world. Since district heating is still dominant and most of the technology for district heating and cooling is the same, the term “district heating” will be used for both.
