Nordic Heat master class: Energy efficiency in buildings


Improving energy efficiency in existing buildings goes hand in hand with the implementation of heat networks. In buildings around the world, heating and cooling account for 35 to 60 percent of total energy demand and, on average, produce nearly 40 percent of emissions. This is why modern district energy schemes have a demand driven design. By reducing the demand for heat as much as possible, costs of installing and operating the system can be minimised. Experiences in Scandinavia indicate that connecting buildings to district energy will, over time, reduce the demand for heat by 20%.

The heat network project currently being investigated in Grimsby is expected to generate similar opportunities. This is of particular interest, not only to developers and operators of buildings, but also to local supply chains providing technologies and services in the real estate sector.

During the Master Class we will provide an overview of proven technologies and best practice, based upon experiences in Scandinavia. We will also highlight innovative solutions, some of which explore new opportunities offered by digital technologies. Our overall ambition is to present hands-on, ready to be implemented solutions that show how cost efficient and rapid energy savings can be achieved.
