    District heating can make you think of many things – for me, it is not often that Robbie Williams is in the back of my head singing along to a DH podcast about very large heat pumps. Nevertheless, that is what Raymond Decorvet from MAN Energy Solutions and Claus A. Nielsen from Esbjerg DH company (DIN Forsyning) managed to do during a podcast about large heat pumps and how to include them in the heat portfolio for a large DH company in Denmark.

    "What is the greater value of heat planning - to cities, citizens, and society?" To give input on that topic, we have invited Mayor Steen Christiansen from the municipality of Albertslund, chairman of the heat transmission company VEKS, and board member of the Danish DH Association to discuss with Volker Kinzlen, Managing Director of KEA, BW.

    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

    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

    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.
