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.

2020 is a year with many firsts: a world-wide pandemic that threatens our society, but also countries stepping up their climate ambitions and the European Union announcing the Climate Neutral Cities mission as well as many opportunities for cities with the Green Deal Policy Framework.
The Celsius Initiative also has some firsts this year: co-creating the forerunner groups together with the Celsius Cities and the first virtual Summit – Celsius Summit 2020

THE FUTURE OF THERMAL GRIDS
Welcome to an international conference on district heating and cooling organised by Euroheat & Power and the COOLDH project.
District heating and cooling is key to the decarbonisation of Europe and the transition to sustainable energy.

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.

Lakes and rivers offer an interesing potential for providing heating and cooling energy to buildings, in particular also in combination with energy efficiency measures on the building envelopes. In this webinar, related strategies and experiences are presented and discussed.

The Upgrade DH project will support and initiate the upgrading process of eight district heating demo cases in Europe in the following countries: Bosnia-Herzegovina, Denmark, Croatia, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Poland, and The Netherlands and will provide the basis for replication to other cities.

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.

Operations at the coal-fired cogeneration plant KVV6 at Värtaverket, which has supplied heat and electricity to Stockholmers since 1989, ground to a halt on 16 April. This event made no ripples in the coronavirus-dominated media mix, but it was worth mentioning. Now that the last remaining facility of this type in Sweden’s capital has been shut down, the city's has come much closer to its ambitious target of being fossil fuel-free by 2040.
