EXPLORING TIMELY SOLUTIONS DURING THE ROYAL VISIT TO POLAND

by Linda Bertelsen

We are proud to be part of the Royal Visit to Poland, which gathered 40 companies focused on energy efficiency or climate-friendly agricultural solutions.

HM King Frederik X headed the visit to Warsaw on his first official visit abroad. DBDH and MPEC Ostroda, on this occasion, signed a Memorandum of Understanding that will assist the utility in their green transition of the district heating systems. From being 80% dependent on coal from Kazakhstan, the utility aims to transform to biomass and gas and reduce dependency on coal to 20% in only two years! We are excited to cooperate closely to reach this ambitious goal.

The first day also comprised round table discussions focusing on two questions: What is the most significant untapped potential for energy efficiency in district energy, and how can Danish-Polish collaboration realize the potential?

The takeaway from the discussions points to the fact that Poland already has a widespread district heating network but lacks strategic heat planning. Energy efficiency is key, as the cheapest energy is the energy saved. Poland and Denmark already cooperate strongly with many cross-border visits and workshops in both countries.

A fantastic first day that concluded with a grande dinner at the Royal Castle hosted by the Danish Ambassador Ole Toft.
