Update of technology catalogue for heating installations

Denmark | September 2020 - April 2021

The Danish Energy Agency and Energinet jointly develop technology catalogues for assessments of developments in energy technology. The catalogues have technical, economic, and environmental information for a range of energy technologies and are used in connection with model work and other analyses. To ensure that the best available data is accessible, the catalogues are updated continuously.

In this project, Ea Energy Analyses was in charge of updating all the existing data sheets in the technology catalogue for heating installations. A new chapter on hybrid heat pumps, with corresponding data sheets, was also added as a part of the project.

Analyses from Ea Energy Analyses, the Climate Council etc. point to the fact that meeting the goal of 70% reduction in carbon emissions in 2030 will require that all oil boilers and at least 70% of the gas boilers are converted to green types of heating. This will necessitate a renewed planning effort from both municipalities and utility companies. The technology catalogue for heating installations will be an important tool in relation to that, and an important part of the foundation for the planning.

The project ran from September 2020 to April 2021.
