A webinar about new results from the ambitious HEATman project – “revolutionary progress towards software integration and communication.”
No doubt, new digital technologies can make the whole energy system smarter and more efficient, by making active use of data and fully optimize the district heating system, network operations, and storage. The result will be lower costs and more sustainable heat production for the consumers.
With some of the leading companies within the district heating sector, the project HEAT 4.0, supported by the Innovations Fund Denmark, demonstrates first revolutionary progress towards software integration through data sharing. Heat 4.0 is an open, integrated digital platform for district heating utilities collecting extensive, diverse data in a central cloud. It enables data to be utilised for various holistic decisions about DH production, storage, and delivery – these are temperature optimisation, peak shaving, leakage detection and others.
The Heat 4.0 consortium consists of 15 companies representing tech companies, software developers, component suppliers, research institutes and universities, district heating utilities, and the Danish District Heating Association. NIRAS as a consultancy engineer, is the leader of the project.
The speakers of the webinar shows some of the current results of their work.
