R&D Project

Low Resource District Heating

The project, which is financed by the Danish Energy Research Programme EUDP, develops design of district heating and block heating as a cost efficient way of reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions in new and existing buildings.

The objective is to reduce the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions related to the heating of buildings by improving the operation of heat production plants and heat distribution systems, by means of cost efficient and intelligent use of district heating and block heating together with renewable energy sources and cost effective design of buildings.

This project will develop and demonstrate how intelligent and efficient use of district heating  and design of buildings envelope and installations can be optimized to reduce the use of fossil fuels and the CO2 emissions in a cost efficient manner.

To reach this objective the project will develop cost effective criteria for low resource district heating and for the Danish Building Regulations, to develop and demonstrate an optimal use of district heating, produced by renewable energy resources and building design (partly by full scale demonstration)
