In this film we invite you to Brunnshög where the Swedish part of COOL DH is taking place. At Brunnshög, Kraftringen is now building the world's largest grid for low temperature district heating.
The objective of COOL DH action is to support cities in their endeavor to plan and deploy new, efficient district heating and cooling (DHC) systems and extend, refurbish existing ones to higher standards. Thus allowing greater uptake of renewables, recovering of excess heat or cold while improving the overall efficiency of the systems.
COOL DH is an abbreviation of Cool ways of using low grade Heat Sources from Cooling and Surplus Heat for heating of Energy Efficient Buildings with new Low Temperature District Heating (LTDH) Solutions. The project is funded by Horizon 2020 – the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness.
The COOL DH consortium consists of the utilities and municipalities of the two cities Lund (SE) and Høje-Taastrup (DK) and leading DH energy specialists as well as leading industrial manufacturers.
