On 27-28 September 2016, the 4DH Research Centre hosted its 2nd International Conference on Smart Energy Systems and 4th Generation District Heating. This year, the Conference took place in Aalborg, Denmark. The conference applied to everyone with an interest in energy systems and district heating and cooling and through the Call of Abstracts, researchers and experts from industry and businesses were invited to contribute to further enhancing the knowledge of 4th Generation District Heating and Smart Energy Systems.
Some of the topics on the agenda:
- What is future sustainable heating?
- How can district heating adopt to the future?
- What are the synergies of smart heating and smart energy systems?
- How is UNEP using the knowledge created in the 4DH center?
- What is smart heating for smart cities?
- How can citizens in Europe and globally get cost-effective heating?
“We have an exciting line-up this year with both International and European perspectives. Last year, 4DH research opened the door for the EU Strategy on Heating and Cooling, and this year 4DH research and technologies are resonating in Japan,” says Head of 4DH Henrik Lund.
The 4DH conference will also feature the world premiere on the movie “Smart Heating Europe” explaining how modern district heating systems can help integrate more renewable energy, meet the CO2 targets, improve the efficiency of the heat supply and secure cheap heating for millions of citizens.
