A new mega district cooling project will make future pilgrimage to the sacred city of Makkah more comfortable for the many pilgrims who visit the Saudi Arabian city each year.
The Danish district energy company, HTF, is establishing district cooling in Høje Taastrup city centre. Driven mainly by heat pumps, the system aims to preserve heat supplies and ensure a low price on heat, while at the same time providing energy-efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly district cooling. Ramboll has developed the business plan and project proposal, and mapped the potential supply areas.
Feasibility study of a district cooling system providing cooling for the headquarters of the Saudi Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
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?
