Hydrogen is hot - very hot!
Morten Jordt Duedahl is back with two top experts, Jørgen Nielsen, chairman of DBDH and managing director of VEKS, and Oddgeir Gudmundsson, who has looked deep into many aspects of district heating and has made new ways to compare DH and hydrogen. He is the scientist in this podcast.
Diversity and gender in the heat network sector
In this podcast episode, Charlotte Owen takes over from your usual host, Morten Jordt Duedahl, to talk about the important topic of gender diversity in the heat networks industry. She is joined by two fantastic women, Rachael Mills of SE2 and founder of the District Heating Divas, and Kamma Eilschou Holm, Director of CTR, a heat network transmission company in Copenhagen. This podcast episode is for all the women and people whose identity includes womanhood who have ever experienced imposter syndrome walked into a room and realised they were the only woman in it. Or put on an enormous pair of safety goggles and hoped no site visit photographs would be taken. It is also for anyone who wants to know more about experiences being a woman in the heat networks industry or who wants to help champion diversity. Whoever you are, we hope this makes you feel a little less alone and a little more included.
Drone Systems: Checking your pipes from the air
District heating networks are some rather expensive infrastructures and should last as long as possible. Managers of DH networks focus on how best to maintain and secure their networks. When the pipes are in the ground, the only factor one can control is nearly the operation and maintenance cost – it is tough to see the pipes again, or maybe not that hard if done from above. For this interview, Morten Jordt Duedahl has invited two specialists in surveying DH networks to discuss how it is done. Bo Jensen Møller, Head of Operation at the Copenhagen DH company HOFOR and Sune Nielsen, tech- and drone wizard, inventor, and COO of the Danish company Drone Systems.
Conversion from gas - We are all in the same boat!
Morten Jordt Duedahl has invited Jens Andersen, managing director of Naestved District Heating, and Jesper Moeller-Larsen, managing director of the DH company in Aalborg. Both are working on converting more of their cities from gas to district heating every day in Denmark. The aim is to inspire others to start their gas conversions and, as always, an invitation to knowledge sharing. We will focus on how to implement conversions.
Planning is Key for Greener District Heating
Morten Jordt Duedahl has invited Hrvoje Klobucar from the Croatian city Karlovac and Johan Sølvhøj Heinesen from Egedal DH Company north of Copenhagen in Denmark to discuss ways to Greener District Heating. Both are managing directors of their DH companies, and both have long experience in our industry. The two gentlemen discuss the challenges with going green, converting from natural gas to DH (also an interpretation of going green), ownership, and how to attract more customers to the companies. In the last part of the podcast, you will get their advice on managing the green transition in the best possible way.
