During the Clean Tech Summit held in Crakow on 9 October, concluding the week-long Road Show in Lower Silesia, Upper Silesia and Malopolska, DBDH signed a Summit Memorandum with conslusive remarks of the Summit with President of the Board of MPEC, Mrs. Zdzislawa Glod and Vice President of the Board of IGCP, Mr. Boguslaw Regulski.
On occasion of the signing, Danish Ambassador Steen Hommel appreciated the very good dialogue expressed in the Memorandum. “We need to be constantly on the look out, to be innovative, to make sure we provide heating and cooling solutions for our citizens at the lowest possible cost in a sustainable way” The ambassador also emphasized the important issues of waste, which was also part of the memorandum. “Thanks to the platform of dialogue, Krakow benefitted from Danish experience when implementing one of the largest investments in waste incineration”, said Tadeusz Trzmiel – Vice President of Crakow, responsible for investments.
It is important to keep momentum and to continue the dialogue with the goal of optimizing district heating systems and improving energy efficiency and provide clean air for the citizens. This also implies using the best available technologies with a long life span – were further conclusions from the Summit.
The road show took its beginning in Walbrych, and made full day stops in the cities of Opole and Gliwice, before concluding in Krakow. The event was organised in close cooperation with The Polish Chamber of District Heating, IGCP, and the Royal Danish Embassy in Warsaw. Mr. Bogoslaw Regulski, Vice President of the Board of Directors of IGCP, followed the delegation on the entire road show. During a very successful and intense week, the Danish companies met with the district heating companies in the region, and learned much more about the current challenges and plans for development. 10 Danish companies participated in the road show, AAEN Consulting Engineers, Procesbio, Rambøll, Arcon, SSM, Desmi Pumping Technology, OE3i, Kamstrup, Danfoss and Clean. In each of the cities, the delegation was met with interest to learn more of the Danish technologies and solutions. “Poland is at the beginning of the road compared to Denmark, and wants to learn from Danish experience” expressed Mr. Boguslaw Regulski. The main theme is how to increase the energy efficiency looking at Danish solutions, and issues like solar heating, the use of waste and biomass and district cooling were important topics of interest during the road show.
