Digitalisation for optimising integrated district heating systems

Background Information

Digital technologies are set to make the whole energy system smarter, more efficient, and reliable and to boost the efficiency and the integration of more renewables into the system In the future, digital applications could enable district energy systems to fully optimise their plant and network operation while empowering the end consumer. Further on, digital technologies are a key enabler for sector coupling and hybridisation of the energy system. On the other hand, challenges need to be tackled, such as data security and privacy as well as questions about data ownership.

The aim of the Webinar is:

  • to discuss the role of digitalisation within a future CO2 free and integrated energy system,
  • to present activities, challenges and solutions from the industry perspective,
  • to get an impression of current commercial solutions,

The webinar is directed towards:

  • District heating network operators and energy suppliers
  • Digitalization solution providers (soft- and hardware, consultancies)
  • R&D institutes and universities 
  • Policy makers, energy authorities and associations

The event is organised in 3 blocks:

10.00 – 11.00: Block 1 – policy framework and the big picture of digitalisation of energy infrastructures

12.30 – 14.00: Block 2 – Digitalisation of district heating systems
