4DH research presented at SDEWES2015

Heating, cooling and electricity smart grids should be seen as part of overall smart energy systems, which should include district energy and renewable and flexible CHP production. This was the main message in Professor and Head of 4DH Henrik Lund’s keynote speech on smart energy systems at this year’s SDEWES conference last week of September in Dubrovnik.

The 10th SDEWES conference, short for Sustainable Development of Energy, Water and Environment Systems, had around 500 visitors from all around the world, and 4DH researchers from Aalborg University, Technical University of Denmark, University of Zagreb, Halmstad University and Linnaeus University were well represented.

Together with others from the 4DH Consortium, Henrik Lund and Deputy Head Brian Vad Mathiesen hosted 10 special sessions on smart energy systems, energy planning and district heating and cooling.

Other presentations included:
