Passiv and Parsons Brinckerhoff identify 40% savings

While the use of district heat networks is well established in some countries, they currently supply just 2% of the UK’s total heat demand. Whilst this is a small contribution at present, an Energy Technologies Institute (ETI) forecast suggests that decentralised heat networks could cost-effectively supply over 40% of the UK’s peak space heat capacity needs by 2050. However, fulfilling this potential means addressing some of the fundamental issues that have troubled district heating schemes in the past.

Passiv working with Dong Energy in Denmark

Following the oil crisis in the 1970s, Denmark set out to become energy self-sufficient. Consequently, as concerns over carbon emissions grew in the 1980s, Denmark found itself with relatively high carbon dioxide emissions per capita, primarily due to the coal-fired electrical power plants that had become the norm after the energy crisis.
