The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Energy is vital to the functioning of our societies. We need solutions that make it possible to combine sound economic growth with little environmental impact and customer convenience.   District Energy is the key to sustainability. Its infrastructure enables significant carbon footprint reductions by allowing cities to harvest the potential of renewable energies and surplus heat that would otherwise go to waste!

In the framework of the innovative COOL DH project, a new LTDH-grid is built in the district in Høje-Taastrup, Denmark. Nowadays, the standard and old district heating systems are replaced by low-temperature district heating (LTDH) or ultra-low-temperature district heating (ULTDH) networks, where the supply temperature will be respectively between 50-60°C in LTDH and below 50°C in ULTDH.

Heating and cooling are the largest sources of energy demand in Europe and, at the moment, they are mainly covered by fossil fuels, while low carbon energy sources like waste heat and cold recovery and renewable energy sources remain marginal.   Nevertheless, current studies showed that, in the European Union (EU), the amount of heat wasted by industries in the form of hot water or flue gases would be sufficient to cover the entire EU’s heating needs.

The first global energy storage conference held in Paris in 2014 concluded that to achieve the European goal of energy-neutral built environment in 2050, harvesting, converting and storing seasonal energy is essential. The 2020 climate and energy package calls for a substantial increase in renewable energy by 2020.
