Exploring District Heating and Cooling in Denmark

By Blandine Pidoux on 6 October 2016

Last September, Energy Cities brought together a group of French cities and representatives from ADEME (the French national energy agency) for a study tour on district heating and cooling in Copenhagen and the Zealand region. Two days of very fruitful visits and peer-to-peer meetings, organised thanks to a partnership with the Danish Embassy in France and the Danish Board of District Heating.

Meeting at DBDH headquarters in Copenhagen

Participants could exchange on the national energy models and contexts in Denmark and France and visit numerous plants showing the transition towards the use of renewables in district heating and cooling or the transition towards low temperatures DHC systems, both being amongst the most challenging issues for European local governments at the moment. The Danish cities of Roskilde and Albertslund could provide the group with inspiring feedback on their local experiences.

Our group visiting the Helsinge Fjernvarme site

A noteworthy visit to Helsinge Fjernvarme new solar panel installation, in operation for almost a year now. The first solar installation of 4,733m2 has been in operation since mid-May 2012. With the expansion of the solar panel installation, its total area is equivalent to 19,588m2. The total annual production is expected to be ca. 9,400MWh or about 20% of the annual heat production to Helsinge Fjernvarme’s 1,600 consumers.
