Identifying decentralised energy opportunities
Transforming an old town full of listed buildings, a burial mound and a fortress canal to an energy-efficient suburb is a challenging task.

Hafslund supplies environmentally friendly heat and hot water to large sections of Oslo’s population through its district heating grid. In 2013 Hafslund produced 1.7 TWh (billions of kWh) of district heating, which equals around 20 percent of Oslo’s heating requirements, or the heating needs of around 170,000 households. The company is Norway’s largest supplier of district heating and is responsible for 36 percent of all district heating generated in Norway.

Find out how to supply heat to an additional 500 dwellings in central London. That was the task that Ramboll was commissioned with by Islington Borough Council. Now the results of this ground breaking study are available. They confirm that the 850 dwellings already connected to the district heating system in central London can be extended to 1350 by adding an innovative low-carbon heat source.
London's Royal Docks area in Docklands is to be redeveloped as a mixed-use complex accommodating new-technology companies, educational facilities and high quality office and residential space, all within close reach of the ExCeL exhibition centre and London City Airport. Ramboll Energy was appointed as a sub-consultant to engineer WSP to deliver the energy masterplanning workstream for the Royal Docks Infrastructure Study commissioned by Newham Council.

Strategic plan for a heat transmission network in Milan in order to utilise heat from combined heat and power plant.
In 2006, opportunities were identified to double sales of district heat from 300 to 600 GWh, by enlarging the network and connecting large gas boilers in four municipalities. The municipally owned waste management company Vestforbrænding made an investment of DKK500 million to do this. Ramboll has provided the company with in-house consultancy services for 40 years, offering a number of different services.

A district heating masterplan for the Greater Manchester Area will be developed in support of local and national commitments to sustainable energy.
Frederiksværk, Denmark, is not a big city in any way - but especially when it comes to CO2 emissions. That’s because in 2002-03, Ramboll worked with city council to install a new wood-chip boiler plant that made the total heat supply of the city CO2 neutral.
Whether the power is generated from burning waste or the combustion of other energy sources, new research that Ramboll and Aarhus University did for Dansk Fjernvarme, R&D fund, suggests that district heating may well hold the answer to one of the greatest challenges of our time: finding a CO2-neutral urban heating system.
Our energy system is changing. In response to a rising need for adjusting the electricity consumption to the electricity production, heat pumps with large thermal storages are gaining ground. Heat pumps are in many ways a beneficial solution as they are able to produce both cooling and heating. Today, heat pumps are typically installed in individual buildings as an alternative to district heating. However, as the use of individual heat pumps is rising on behalf of district heating, the society is missing out on both environmental and economic benefits. So how can a utility company take advantage of heat pumps?
