Danish Board of District Heating (DBDH is a private organisation representing the leading actors of the Danish district energy sector, including:
DBDH implements conferences, seminars and exhibitions with the purpose of making this consolidated experience available worldwide. Furthermore, DBDH develops and maintains cooperative agreements with district heating organisations abroad for the purpose of exchanging information related to all aspects of district heating.
Through our magazine, Hot Cool, which is published quarterly, we reach more than 9,500 readers in over 50 countries. The magazine presents state-of-the-art district heating technology in all its aspects through articles written by experienced professionals.
Antwerp in Belgium is looking at opportunities to use waste heat from their new waste incineration for district heating. ISVAG, which is in charge of construction of the plant in Antwerp, signed an agreement with ARC and DBDH two days ago in connection with the royal visit. The agreement will ensure a long-term cooperation between the three organizations.
Heat Plan Denmark 2010 is an update of Heat Plan Denmark 2008 and confirmes how the sector has reduced the CO2 emission in Denmark since 1980 and how this development can continue in a cost effective way to an almost CO2 neutral heating sector in 2030. The study is based on an overall least cost evaluation of the […]
