Energy for a vertical city

​​Warmtenetwerk Magazine Klaas de Jong Autumn, 2015 A challenging construction project The striking building was designed by Rem Koolhaas and the project had its fair share of setbacks. The project partners started making preparations in 1998, but the project was put on hold after the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and was […]

District energy: power for cities the sustainable way

The future of energy distribution is modern district energy. Integrated systems pipe water and steam around a city to heat and cool buildings, producing electricity along the way and increasingly integrating renewable energy. District energy systems (DES) are exceptionally energy-efficient, leveraging energy that is typically lost and using diverse energy sources for multiple buildings. DES […]

​​Göteborg förebild för mer fjärrvärme i Europa

​​Fjärrvärmetidningen​ Ann-Sofie Borglund December, 2013 I Göteborg har 90 procent av flerbostadshusen och lokalerna fjärrvärme. Den genomsnittliga siffran i Europa är 12 procent. Nu ska det bli ändring på detta. Göteborgs stad och Göteborg Energi leder EU-projektet Celsius vars mål är att fler städer i Europa ska nyttiggöra överskottsvärme för att värma, men också kyla, […]

Waste heat from the Tube will help to warm hundreds of homes

A pioneering new deal announced today will capture waste heat from London Underground tunnels and an electrical substation to help warm homes and cut energy bills. The project – the first of its kind in Europe – is a partnership between Islington Council, the Mayor of London Boris Johnson, UK Power Networks and Transport for […]

Energie aus Abwasser nutzbar gemacht

Mit Abwasser abgeleitete Wärme aus Kanälen mittels Wärmetauschtechnik nutzbar zu machen, um damit größere Gebäudekomplexe oder ganze Stadtviertel umweltfreundlich zu beheizen, das klingt in Zeiten des Klimawandels vielversprechend. Technisch ist das Verfahren nicht neu. Doch die bislang mit dem Abwasser abgeleitete Wärme aus Kanälen mittels Wärmetauschtechnik nutzbar zu machen, um dam​it größere Gebäudekomplexe oder ganze […]

​​Fjärrvärme sänker Danicas utsläpp med 75 procent

I ett spännande ​samarbete mellan Göteborg Energi AB och Stena Line blir Stena Danica första fartyg som ansluts till fjärrvärmenätet. Befintlig teknik ska användas på ett helt nytt sätt och resultatet blir att utsläppen av koldioxid minskar med ungefär 75 procent, från cirka 800 ton till 195 ton koldioxid per år. Nu ska projektet inspirera andra […]

Kick off CELSIUS

THE FUTURE OF DISTRICT HEATING AND COOLING STARTS TODAY! Influential city leaders from across Europe will meet in Gothenburg this week to kick off CELSIUS, a major European low carbon energy programme under the Smart Cities and Communities umbrella of the European Research Programme (FP7). The overall aim with the project is to save energy […]
