    As a part of a study visit to Denmark representatives of the Polish heating sector visited the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen to discuss best practises and further potential of Polish-Danish cooperation within this area, in particular as regards ‘greening’ of the district heating.

    The aim of the study visit to Denmark was the exchange of best-practices and lessons-learned, i.a.  about biomass utilization, cogeneration installations and new technologies related to construction of modern waste incinerators etc. Cooperation and exchange of experiences in the heating sector is important for Poland due to the ambitions for CO2 emission reduction and improvement of air quality. The majority of Polish heating companies face the same challenges: a need to swiftly modernize the heating network, phasing-out of carbon blocks, implementation of new IT systems and use of new technologies. Moreover, many cities plan to invest in construction of modern waste incinerators. In her welcoming speech ambassador H. Mościcka-Dendys underlined: “I hope that your visit to Danish companies in Aarhus, Odense and Copenhagen will be inspiring and will result in unleashing of the still untapped potential of Polish-Danish neighbourhood across the Baltic Sea”.

     

    The study trip of Polish heating sector representatives to Denmark on 2-6 June 2019 was a result of cooperation between the Embassy of Denmark in Poland, the Danish Board of District Heating and the Chamber of Commerce Polish District Heating. The delegation included about 10 Polish businesses, including Veolia, PGNiG, Termika, Przedsiębiorstwo Energetyki Cieplnej  of Gliwice, Olsztyn and Siedlce, and Polska Grupa Energetyczna (PGE). Their Danish partners were Danfoss, Kamstrup, Verdo and Acron. The participants visited several partners, including a heat energy corporation in Odense, which is operating the largest heat and power plants on Funen, employing almost 300 people and being one of the largest heat suppliers in Europe. They also had the opportunity to study different solutions within the heating sector, including a visit to a factory fuelled by biomass and solar energy from a 26,000 m2 solar power plant.
