Case stories

SWEP plays major role in innovative Danish district heating project

A former agricultural area in Høje-Taastrup on the outskirts of Copenhagen has been transformed into a thermal energy storage facility. The facility or ‘Heat pit storage’ as it is bestknown, supports the district heating system that serves the Copenhagen metropolitan area. Its purpose is to store district heating from four connected Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plants and three waste to energy plants when it is cheap to produce, then to distribute it when it is expensive to produce.
