Video: Smart heating systems are necessary to lower our CO2 emissions and achieve 100% renewable energy

Did you know that the heat being wasted in Europe could heat all of our buildings if it was collected in smart district heating grids?

In 2018, 40% of the energy consumed in Europe was for heating. All this energy can become sustainable through modern district heating systems collecting waste heat from power plants and industry, and working at low temperatures which minimizes the heat loss and integrates more sources of renewable energy.

The video below describes how Europe could transform its heating supply to be low-carbon and cost-effective whilst maintaining security of supply.

The video was financed by the 4DH Research Centre and Blue Planet Innovation together with Danish district heating system and component manufacturers Danfoss, Kamstrup, and LOGSTOR, and Danish district heating suppliers Aarhus Affaldvarme and Aalborg Forsyning.
