District heating

Moving surplus heat that has no or very low value in one place to areas with high heat demand creates a flexible energy system

A district heating system utilises centrally produced energy to heat water, which is distributed through pipes to provide heat to local areas. Heat that otherwise has no or very low value in one place, e.g. industrial surplus heat, is transformed into a high value commodity in areas with high heat demand. Utilising surplus heat from energy production and ensuring systems integration between electricity and heat has increased the flexibility of the Danish energy system and been one of the key drivers for reduced energy consumption and CO₂ emissions from the energy sector.
