All over the world, politicians try to solve the big question: How to decarbonize the world, their country, region, or city. Some answers have more political than real value.

For reducing CO2 emissions on a scale significant to the climate, it is not enough to encourage people to eat vegetarian food on Wednesdays or to dry their laundry outdoors.

CO2 reductions, at scale, are achieved by integrating the entire energy system. Here the district heating grid is the backbone.

In this issue, you can read about solutions reducing CO2 emissions – all linked to the district heating network utilizing excess electricity from wind turbines and solar cells, surplus heat from data-centers, eFuel production, and heat pumps absorbing energy from the ocean.

With so many opportunities, how do you find the right solution for your city? DBDH publishes Hot Cool, but the main business is helping cities or regions in their green energy transition. We help find specific answers for a sustainable district energy solution or integrate green technology into an existing district energy system.

Any city or utility worldwide can call DBDH and get help to find a green district energy solution suitable for their city. A similar system is often in Denmark, being the most advanced district energy country globally. DBDH then organizes visits to Danish reference utilities or expert delegations from Denmark to the city.

DBDH is a non-profit organization, so guidance by DBDH is free of charge. Just give us a call.

We’ll love to help you decarbonize your city!
