In close cooperation with Scottish Government, the City of Edinburgh, the City of Glasgow and the Highland Council we are delighted to be able to invite a Danish delegation to a 3 day export promotion tour to Scotland from January 17-19.
According to the latest export survey by Cowi, the UK ranks high on expectations for the future district heating market (page 43++). Both the UK and the Scottish government have pushed the district heating agenda strongly – recently DECC (as it was called earlier) announced its 300 mio pund support to district heating projects across the UK. Scottish government also heavily support the roll out. In the spring the STRATEGO project held a series of seminars at local authorities across Scotland to inform and support the local authorities in their plans. In short, district heating is on the move in Scotland.
As you may be aware DBDH has worked closely with several district heating stakeholders e.g. local authorities, housing associations, universities across Scotland, given several lecturer at conferences, taken part in strategy workshops and recently also started the first district heating mentoring program where Aalborg Forsyning acts as a mentor for a specific project in Scotland. We can therefor give you a high-value program in Scotland.
This visit will enable energy practitioners from Scotland and Denmark to exchange knowledge and engage in collaboration on building the future energy systems that we need. Join this 3-day visit to update your knowledge on the status and future plans for district heating in Scotland, and seize this opportunity to engage in a direct dialogue with the DH VIPs in Scotland.

We use the term “camp” above. A camp is a method for conduction a workshop – some of you may remember the Scottish Danish District Heating Camp in Copenhagen a few years back. The idea is to gather several persons from the local stakeholders e.g. university, local authority, housing association, developers. Through presentations of specific challenges from a few of the participants, solutions will be discussed in smaller groups. In the end all should have been in a group with everyone else.
