Regarding future projects and activities that increase efficiency, Johan mentions: “We will gain a staggering amount of experience working with other companies, and I think that, in general, district heating companies should share and exploit the knowledge created in collaboration with each other”, emphasizing that once the merger between Gentofte and Gladsaxe is completed, Gentofte District Heating Company wants to work with other companies, further researching district cooling, low-temperature heating and best-practice solutions.
Gentofte District Heating Company is in the process of establishing a specialized group of employees dedicated to researching better ways of meeting customer demand through technical optimizations of the heating network. Recently, the company conducted an experiment on low-temperature heating in co-operation with the Technical University of Denmark. The experiment revealed how to regulate temperatures efficiently in both old and new buildings. The project is intended to be explored further, preferably alongside likeminded people from the industry.
