It has been a strange spring. Each person around the globe has felt the effects of the spread Covid-19, but so far it has had a relatively limited impact on the overall progress of the COOL DH-project.
There has been some problems with deliveries of equipment, but there has also been some positive effects. Since the city mall in Høje-Taastrup (CITY 2) was closed down, it has allowed piping through retail space without affecting sales for this reason.
Of course, being an international project with members from different countries, all meetings and planned dissemination activities have turned digital or been postponed. But overall the project is proceeding as planned.
Watch our webinars!
In March and April COOL DH arranged and co-arranged two interesting webinars that focused on the technical solutions to make LTDH a success. Haven´t seen them? You will find them on the links below.
Webinar: Technical solutions that makes LTDH a success – this is how we do it!
The webinar was held the 31st of March. Learn more as we dive into some of the technical solutions for low temperature district heating.
The talk was broadcasted the 16th of April and is now available to watch. Take this chance to learn more about how to step into the sustainable future of the heating sector!
Reports and deliverables
Inspiration: LTDH in the public space
What would be possible if we had close to an unlimited amount of lukewarm water? After conducting workshops, exploring existing ideas and promote low temperature district heating to the public we ended up with some exiting ideas on how to use LTDH in the public space.
Central production system (CPS) – producing heating and cooling as well as surplus heating for the LTDH grid
This deliverable focuses on the heat recovery system installed at MAX IV facility, which aims to recover the heat produced by the cooling system and supply it to the new district heating network in Brunnshög district.
New type of substation to meet the requirements of LTDH
The transition to low-temperature supply in district heating networks requires new technical solutions to meet the heat requirements of the consumers and guarantee their safety. The new distribution system at the COOL DH demo site in Høje-Taastrup does just that!
At the time being there are no scheduled events. However, depending on how the corona epidemic evolves, COOL DH will be one of the co-organizers of a big district heating conference this November. More information to come!
