What these two examples have in common is that they also represent a huge value-creation potential for district heating utilities, building owners and end users. But you need the right tools to turn your data into knowledge you can act on – which brings us to our second prediction.
Tools like Kamstrup’s Heat Intelligence, which combines smart meter data with facts about the pipes in the distribution network, create the transparency you need – both before and after your point of delivery. This enables you to lower forward and return temperatures, reduce network losses, improve asset management as well as integrate more waste heat and renewables. In this way, you can optimise your core tasks of producing and distributing heat and perhaps even explore new business opportunities. And this handily taps into our final prophecy.
Time will tell if our predictions prove to be correct in 2030, but considering the development of the district heating industry over the last decade, it is difficult not be optimistic about the time until then.
