Gentofte district heating – 4th Generation district heating

Gentofte district heating is currently expanding the district heating network in several areas of the municipality. Ensuring a competitive, eco-friendly district heating system requires ongoing optimisation of both investments and continuous service needs. The purpose of the project is to illustrate the potential and possibilities of implementing a 4th-generation district heating system in one or more areas of the district-heating expansion in Gentofte. The following subjects were analyzed:

1. Assessment of areas (type of buildings, etc.)

2. Preparation of technical concept for 4th-generation district-heating grid

3. Hydraulic optimization (Termis) of the grid to 4th generation district heating

4. Investment and assessment of savings compared to a reference scenario (the present rate structure)
