Opportunities and challenges for renewable energies     The proposal for a revised Directive on renewable energy from the European Commission includes a new article on district heating and cooling. This article (Article 24) also foresees the non-discriminatory access to district heating and cooling systems for renewable heating and cooling supply. Some proponents expect an important push for renewable energy from this provision. Others see severe problems due to the essential differences between electricity and district heating grids.

This brochure published by the Danish Energy Agency, the Danish Board of District Heating and the Danish public-private partnership State of Green, provides information about the history of district heating in Denmark. It describes the main characteristics of district heating systems in the country, which mainly rely on cogeneration of heat and power and from the combustion of waste and natural gas. It explains the process for public heat planning and for approval of projects by municipalities.
