Cogeneration of heat and power is a cost-effective way of reducing CO₂ emissions
Cogeneration of heat and power is a cost-effective way of reducing CO₂ emissions. Combined Heat and Power (CHP) production facilities enable efficiency rates of more than 90 per cent resulting in CHP power plants being the most efficient in the world. Excess heat from the CHP plants is distributed through the district heating system, which supplies more than 60 per cent of all heat consumed by Danish households. The district heating system is an efficient way of using excess heat that would otherwise have been wasted. Moreover, it is a very flexible solution for storing heat from electricity or industrial production.
We invite you to explore solutions related to combined heat and power production in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest news and discover real-life case examples of how combined heat and power production can help solve energy issues.

EC POWERs smallest cogeneration unit is a real endurance runner: the XRGI® 6 only needs a pitstop for maintenance every 10,000 operating hours. The mini-CHP units for residential and small industrial buildings achieve an overall degree of utilisation of up to 103%. In addition, they offer a good possibility to start using combined heat and power technology in buildings with smaller energy demands.
EC POWERs XRGI® 9 is a real endurance runner; it only needs a pitstop for maintenance every 10,000 operating hours. The mini-CHP units for residential and small industrial buildings achieve an overall degree of utilisation of up to 106%. In addition, they offer a good possibility to start using combined heat and power technology in buildings with smaller energy demands.
The purpose of the course is to give participants a thorough insight to the various aspects of the District Heating business. The course offer curated, impartial, compressed high-quality content delivered by 7 international specialists with many years of experience. The course offers two live webinars, 45 video lessons (650 minutes), access to DH learning platform […]
District Energy holds a vast potential for energy efficiency in urban areas. This White Paper highlights the key elements for success in district heating and cooling. It covers aspects from regulation and planning, efficient production of thermal energy, to storage, distribution and end user solutions.
Aalborg CSP landed an order to deliver a 2.6 MWth solar-thermal plant in Denmark. With the system in Egedal, Aalborg CSP continues its series of new projects based on customized solutions with solar and storage supporting a competitive transition to renewable energy.
Aalborg CSP has received the largest order in terms of megawatt power to deliver steam generator systems based on the leakage-free header-and-coil technology for three CSP plants in Dubai, each providing 200 MWe totalling 600 MWe for the largest CSP project in the world. When completed, the solar park will provide clean energy to more than 270,000 residences in Dubai, while reducing the carbon emissions by 1.4 million tonnes per year.
Wood chips for energy purposes have formerly had an immature existence as a raw material with opaque prices and no official marketplace. The new stock exchange, BiomassPool, aims to create a transparent market with competitive prices and sustainability as central parameters.
In the years leading up to 2035, the amount of wind and solar power in the Northern European energy system will grow to the extent that new energy plants which can convert electricity into other energy products will become cost-effective, especially in Denmark.
One of Denmark’s largest biomass fired combined heat and power (CHP) plants is located in the Aarhus area and was put into operation in spring 2017. It is a vital part of the Municipality of Aarhus’ Climate Strategy, which has replacing fossil fuels with sustainable energy as one of its cornerstones.
270 people have united to create the first off-grid village in Denmark. The goal is to produce their own electricity and heat. In addition, they will collect and purify their own drinking water, as well as treat their own wastewater.
The annual World Energy Trilemma Index assesses the sustainability of national energy systems based on three core dimensions: energy security, energy equity and environmental sustainability. This is the third consecutive year Denmark has topped the index, where it achieved the highest score for energy security.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) presented its latest review of Denmark’s energy policies in Copenhagen yesterday. The report highlighted Denmark’s efforts to decarbonise its energy sector while still maintaining a reliable and secure supply and provided several recommendations for the direction of future energy policies.
Heliac’s solution is based on the invention of an inexpensive lens that focuses the sunlight in the same way as a large magnifying glass. Based on the lens, Heliac builds modular panels each supplying 12 kW of heat. Lendemarke Fjernvarmeværk, owned by Europe’s largest privately owned energy company, E.ON., is the first customer of a […]
In this paper, you will meet the ten partners behind the Tours Network and find inspiration for site visits across energy efficiency, renewables, waste and resource management, clean air, water and climate adaptation.
If you are interested in visiting Denmark to explore these solutions and learn more about the concrete technologies, as well as connect with Danish stakeholders and share knowledge about green growth development, we encourage you to contact the Tours Network.
Project approval of heat projects in Denmark The Danish district heating legislation is set out in the Heat Supply Act that regulates the heating sector and provides local authorities (i.e. municipalities) with the power to engage in local heat planning, make decisions on energy infrastructure and on which resources is to be prioritized. The legislation […]
The aim towards a 100% renewable energy supply and optimum energy consumption by 2030 The Frederikshavn Municipality has prepared a strategy plan on renewable energy 2030. The strategy plan follows the Municipality action plan on the EU Covenant of Mayors agreement prepared in December 2012. The strategy plan is prepared to implement the energy policy of Frederikshavn Municipality for the entire Municipality as geographical boundary and aims […]
Do something about the energy resources As the world’s population grows and emerging economies expands rapidly, global demand and competition for energy are set to intensify in the decades to come. This will probably drive up prices of the world’s finite oil and other fossil fuel resources. Our energy resources are concentrated largely in a […]
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 […]
