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.
Høje Taastrup District Heating and COWI A/S have examined the potential of a short time and seasonal energy storage in the municipality of Høje-Taastrup. The storage will be established as an ATES plant. Uffe Shleiss from Høje Taastrup District Heating summarizes the findings. What is the main purpose of the deliverable? The deliverable has the Read more about Development of short time and seasonal energy storage[…]
A little more than one year into the project, we have now gotten far in the innovation process on developing smart city LTDH-solutions and system optimization with interesting results. In this webinar, we will present some of these findings.
Low temperatures in domestic hot water systems increases the risk of growth of Legionella bacteria which if inhaled can cause Pontiac fever or Legionnaires’ disease. Lund University, Kraftringen and COWI have worked on a report that investigates solutions for avoiding risk of Legionella when using LTDH. Kerstin Sernhed from Lund University (Dept. of Energy Sciences) introduces the report.
Kraftringen and COWI A/S have produced this report that shortly describes the technology and history of HWC (Heating Water Circuit) appliances, as well as traditional dishwashers that are connected to hot tap water and washing machines with both hot and cold water connections.
Welcome to COOL DH newsletter #1 With close to one year into the COOL DH project we are now ready to launch our first newsletter. Here you will find a mix of the status on each demo site, reports on the different deliverables and innovations within the project, upcoming events and other useful information. We Read more about COOL DH newsletter #1: September 2018[…]
Kraftringen and COWI A/S have worked together on a paper that describes the analysis of energy efficiency in heat pump systems that recover waste heat from low temperature heat sources for District Heating. Martin Gierow, chemical engineer and project manager at Kraftringen, introduces the report that you can download below. What is the main purpose Read more about How to optimize cascade couplings for best use of low temperature sources[…]
Curious on COOL DH? In this flyer we describe the main components of COOL DH, giving you a short and quick introduction to the project. The flyer is available both on screen and for download by clicking the image.
Sara Kralmark and Göran Strandberg from Kraftringen together with Mårten Ahlm from Alfa Laval held a presentation on COOL DH at the Nordic Clean Energy Week. With an audience of about 130 people, the presentation created a lot of interest in the COOL DH project. Kraftringen and Alfa Laval took the opportunity to present COOL Read more about COOL DH at the Nordic Clean Energy Week[…]
Welcome to COOL DH! In this project, we will develop new and path-breaking solutions for district heating and demonstrate state of the art example of district heating systems that are adapted to a sustainable energy system. COOL DH will innovate, demonstrate, evaluate and disseminate technological solutions needed to use sources of low-grade waste heat in Read more about COOL DH – a pioneering project for district heating solutions[…]
