HOT|COOL NO. 2/2020 - "Decarbonizing"

Decarbonizing is a big issue

All over the world, politicians try to solve the big question: How to decarbonize the world, their country, region, or city. Some answers have more political than real value. For reducing CO 2 emissions on a scale significant to the climate, it is not enough to encourage people to eat vegetarian food on Wednesdays or to dry their laundry outdoors.

CO 2 reductions, at scale, are achieved by integrating the entire energy system. Here the district heating grid is the backbone.

In this issue, you can read about solutions reducing CO 2 emissions - all linked to the district heating network utilizing excess electricity fromwind turbines and solar cells, surplus heat from data-centers, eFuel production, and heat pumps absorbing energy from the ocean. When so many opportunities, how do you find the right solution for your area? DBDH publishes Hot Cool, but the main business is helping cities or regions in their green transition. We help to find specific answers for a sustainable district heating solution or integrating green technology into an existing district heating system. Any city, or utility in the world, can call DBDH and get help to find a green district heating solution suitable for their city. Very often, a similar system is in operation in Denmark, being the most advanced district heating country in the world. DBDH then organizes visits to Danish reference utilities or expert delegations from Denmark to the city.

DBDH is a non-profit organization - so guiding by DBDH is free of charge.

Just give us a call.

We’ll love to help you decarbonize your city!

Best regards
