China plans to peak CO2 emissions before 2030 and become CO2-neutral in 2060, and heating is an integral part of the energy consumption.
Both China and Denmark are experienced in district heating, and the project will combine knowledge of DH systems in China with Danish heat planning approaches. The learnings, from this combined path towards more sustainable heating in China, will be shared with DH experts at universities and utilities in China.
