Support for district heating analyses

Denmark | January 2019 - October 2019

As a consequence of the Danish government’s energy agreement from June 2018, the Danish Energy Agency (DEA) carried out a wide-ranging analysis of the consequences of changes to the regulations of the district heating sector.

In this project, Ea Energy Analyses assisted the DEA with professional support about methodology, data prerequisites, model and interpretation of results related to the analysis.

As a part of the analysis, the DEA had a need for new data about planned new district heating plants, conversion of plants, and decommissioning in district heating areas which all have a heating basis of more than 500 TJ, or are areas with heat production units based on waste.

To provide the new data for the DEA, Ea Energy Analyses made an Excel spreadsheet showing new plants, conversions and decommissioning, based on existing knowledge and screening of publicly available sources.

The project ran from January to October 2019.
