Today, the surplus heat from the fishing industry in the city contributes with 20 % and the waste heat contributes with 35 % to the total heat production of the district heating plant. The fees on the heat have decreased, leading to lower heat expenses overall. “We work to increase the share of surplus heat from the fishing industry. Since 2015, the surplus heat has increased from 4,500 MWh/annually to 16,000 MWh/annually. We still expect a substantial increase”, states Jan Diget. Knowledge sharing on district heating Last year, following a visit by Asian ambassadors to Skagen District Heating Plant, operating supervisor, Jan Diget, travelled to Glasgow to teach the Scots about district heating. The journey was part of a Danish export drive titled ‘District Heating Planning Along’. Jan Diget gladly joined the team from The Danish Energy Agency, the Danish Trade Organization and DBDH. Jan Diget presented three keynote speeches while in Scotland. “District heating is quite new in Scotland. Only two or three % of the houses are heated by district heating. Most people use gas furnace, so there is a vast potential market. I presented how we use the surplus production from the fishing industry and general waste to generate district heating. In addition, I talked about how we motivated customers for district heating and how the socio-economic structure is”, says Jan Diget.
