Programme

FutureHeat

Futureheat is the evolution of the Fjärrsyn programme were we develop knowledge required for district heating companies to continue their positive transformation of the energy system.

Conditions change and the industry needs to continually develop and renew operations in order to remain successful. In the first phase, the programme ran for just over a year beginning in the autumn of 2017.

The long-term goal of the initiative is to contribute to the vision of a sustainable heating system built around successful companies utilising new technological opportunities and the smartest investemensts. Cost-effective solutions adapted to today and tomorrow's systems will be a priority area of research.

News update

Flexible heat demand is possible

Recent RnD shows that it is possible to utilize considerable amounts of demand flexibility in district heating grids. With an extended system boundary that includes buildings, district heating grids, and connection to electricity grids, a co-optimization can be performed that creates great economic value for the economy as well as the environment.

Thermal energy meters with short integration times

Research shows that a faster energy measurement gives a better picture of the power requirement. This makes it possible to control the delivery of heat better and to reduce the use of facilities for top load, which contributes to achieving current environmental and climate goals.
