Best practices in European planning and construction of DH systems

October 25, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Here is an opportunity to learn more about best practices in the planning and construction of district heating systems. Across countries, size, experience, etc., TNO and DBDH have studied the best approach for planning and constructing the European district heating network.

Now we have got the results and want to share them with you. We invite you to participate in a webinar where we present the report and its finding on October 25th, 10.00 – 11.30.

End of program


Tom de Bruyckere from Antwerp has played a significant role in creating the DH network in Antwerp during the last years. Tom has spent a lot of time learning best practices from many more experienced DH companies from Germany, Denmark, and others.

Hartmut Ayrle from the Municipality of Bruchsal has been the municipal lead in developing the 2 DH networks in Bruchsal.

They promised to share their experiences on best practices, including some things they would have liked to know before they started. We look forward to getting their input on the report and developing the DH system almost from scratch as inspiration to the workshop and our discussions.

The EU’s Joint Research Center finances the study.
