HOT|COOL NO. 2/2018 - "40 Years Anniversary"


A RELIABLE AND FLEXIBLE ALTERNATIVE TO FOSSIL FUELS Biomass is by far the best alternative to coal when it comes to larger heating plants. Alternative sources are often more unreliable and less cost-efficient. In order to move the fossil based households to green heat networks, the cost per MWh must be competitive. With a low total cost of ownership, a biomass plant will often lead to significant savings for both consumers and the district heating company.

biofuels, e.g. combined wood chips and straw combustion, the heating plant will achieve very high flexibility based on access and pricing. At the moment, no other renewable energy source can supply cost-efficient and sustainable heating with a steady supply. THE FUTURE OF DANISH EXPORT OPPORTUNITIES Biomass is the most convenient and efficient replacement for fossil fuels; however, the politicians and the media seem to neglect this topic. The lack in focus worries biomass companies, like Linka Energy. Denmark has some of the world’s leading technology in district heating which represents great export opportunities. DBDH, Linka Energy and all other member companies are continuously working to promote district heating across the world. More political focus, as well as subsidy programmes, is needed to maintain our know-how and innovative technology, which is a corner stone of the future of district heating.

In addition, the system must provide a steady access to heating, especially when supplying various households and businesses. While other energy sources are often relying on certain conditions, like weather, biomass is one of the most flexible systems available. By adjusting the system to different

“In 2058, the most dramatic change in our energy system will

be that district heating and cooling together with heat pumps managed to completely decarbonize the heating and cooling sector." Sven Werner, Professor emeritus, Energy Technology, Halmstad University

In 2058, the most dramatic change in our energy system

will be that the primary heat supply will be without fuels. District heating will thus be a cornerstone of the smart energy system.” Lars Christian Lilleholt, Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate, Venstre

“In 2058, the most dramatic change in

our energy system will be that exergy will be an

embedded part of overall efficiency.” Robin Wiltshire, Technical Director, Building Research Establishment (BRE)
