Welcome to 4DH
The 4DH Research Centre is a unique collaboration between industry, universities and the public sector to investigate the potential for and develop 4th Generation District Heating (4GDH).
4DH has created focus on and knowledge about the future 4GDH potential within the district heating industry. 4GDH systems and technologies will play a big part in future cost-effective sustainable energy systems and are likely to replace the import of fossil fuels and create jobs and economic growth in Denmark and in Europe.
Among other results, the Heat Roadmap Europe studies have developed the most advanced knowledge about energy planning currently available for analysing the heating sector in Europe and have demonstrated how a simultaneous expansion of heat savings, district heating, and heat pumps will result in the cheapest low-carbon heating sector for Europe.
