Visit from NATO campuses

25. April 2017 - 26. April 2017

Visit from NATO campuses

Until recently, most planners of public communities (military garrisons, universities, etc.) addressed energy systems for new facilities on an individual facility basis without consideration of energy sources, renewables, storage, or future energy generation needs. Building retrofits of public buildings typically do not address energy needs beyond the minimum code requirements.

Energy demand reduction using energy performance contracting models typically address mechanical and lighting systems and their controls; and electrical energy savings from these projects range between 20% and 40% from the pre-renovation baseline.

Significant additional energy savings and increased energy security can be realized by considering holistic solutions for the heating and cooling needs of the buildings. The status quo in planning and execution of energy-related projects will not support attainment of current energy goals (EPBD in Europe and 10CFR-433 in the United

There is also a need to add advanced energy supply, distribution, and storage systems for district heating and cooling for the standalone campus or as an integrated part of a nearby city.

Prelimanary programme:

The Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs have followed this development and participated in conferences and meetings. Ramboll, Danfoss and SBI have made presentations at conferences and meetings during 2016, and have now scheduled a conference in Copenhagen Rambøll in Ørestad 25-26 April 2017. The focus of the conference will be to present the latest knowledge and demonstration projects for district heating and cooling as well as the transformation from first and second generation district heating to third and fourth generation where there is full integration between electricity, district heating and cooling with storage. There will be a special focus on security of supply and the possibility of 100% self-sufficiency in electricity, heating and cooling in emergencies.

Preliminary programme:
April 25:
09-17 Conference with contributions from Denmark and several other countries, focusing on campus cases
17-18 Presentations of 3-4 main sponsors of district heating and cooling equipment
18-19 Reception in the exhibit space with posters where mini sponsors can participate in the reception and then dinner and networking
19-21 Conference dinner at the exhibition area and network

April 26:
09-13 Conference continues
13-14 Shuttle to DTU
14-16 Presentation of the energy on the DTU campus of Operations Manager Anders B. Møller, including
district heating, district cooling project for interconnection with Vestforbrænding, project for ATES, solar cells etc.
End of conference

Expenses for the conference of catering coffee, 2 x lunch, 1 dinner and the bus is estimated to DKK 1000 per participant.
