Energy Scenarios for Denmark

The hypothesis is that 4DH and low-energy buildings will contribute to the creation of thermal comfort in the future.

The research is based on existing knowledge from previous research projects but probes further into the future with an aim of investigating scenarios for Danish heating sectors.

Of particular focus is a) the threshold between, on the one hand, individual heating technologies and, on the other hand, communal solutions and b) the borderline between heating and energy savings.

The work investigates the extent to which district heating is favourable against individual heating and the extent to which energy savings are favourable against heating supply and hence also the energy systems perspective of concepts like passive and active houses. Concepts like district cooling also fall under this umbrella.
