COOL DH - a pioneering project for district heating solutions #cool_dh

About Cool DH

The objective of COOL DH action is to support cities in their endeavor to plan and deploy new, efficient district heating and cooling (DHC) systems and extend, refurbish existing ones to higher standards. Thus allowing greater uptake of renewables, recovering of excess heat or cold while improving the overall efficiency of the systems.

Demo sites

Brunnshög, Lund

The Brunnshög district is an ambitious project, with the goal to offer the best research and innovation environment in the world and to showcase sustainable urban development. Fully developed the district will have 40,000 inhabitants and employees before 2050. Low-grade surplus heat recovered from the research facilities of ESS and MAX IV will heat the entire district.

Østerby, Høje Taastrup

In 2015, the district heating supply consisted of 51 % fossil free energy from biomasses, the renewable part of waste, solar, geothermal energy etcetera. Using a larger share of low-grade surplus heat and increasing system efficiency is an important step of reducing emissions even more.

A smart energy system coming to place in Høje-Taastrup

, ,
In this video you will see how low-temperature district heating and large heat pumps are an essential element in Høje Taastrup District Heating and Høje-Taastrup Municipality's collaborative journey towards an efficient, flexible and smart energy system.

New innovative main line with heat recovery

,
On the demonstration site in Høje-Taastrup municipality a new type of multimedia pipe system with heat recovery has been installed in the distribution network. The product developed shows that it is possible to integrate collector pipes in standard district heating pipes to recover heat and minimise heat loss.

New type of PE-RT pipes with leakage detection

The possibility to detect potential leakage in a DH (or LTDH) system is crucial. In COOL DH, plastic media pipes are used instead of the classic steel media pipes. This requires a slightly different solution to detect leakage.
