German delegation visit to Denmark

Meet German Mayors and Directors from German Stadtwerke in Denmark.

Germany is accelerating the energy transformation process and enabling the implementation of new investments that would help build energy security and independence. The German district heating sector will play an important element in this process. 15-20 mayors and directors from Stadtwerke in Baden-Württemberg and Hessen will visit Denmark to study how to implement more, faster, and better district heating in Germany.

The tour will focus on

- How to organize, finance, build and operate a DH Transmission Company
- Optimization of district heating systems
- Renewables (e.g., biomass, solar, heat pumps, geothermal)
- Heat intelligence
- Practical examples - visits to plants
- Heat mapping
- Cooperation between cities and district heating companies
