Brønderslev Forsyning wins this year´s Danish District Heating award. The district heating plant in Brønderslev was nominated for its globally unique green energy facility. The system is the first of its kind in the world to demonstrate how CSP (concentrated solar power) with an integrated energy system design can optimize efficiency of ORC even in less sunny areas. This pioneering facility produces both sustainable power and heat with the help of an advanced solar energy system from Aalborg CSP A/S.

The District Heating Award is presented each year at the Annual Danish District Heating Conference and recognizes excellence and innovation within the Danish District Heating industry.

The system in Brønderslev is the first combined heat and power (CHP) plant in Denmark, but also in the whole world to integrate concentrated solar power (CSP) and a biomass boiler while also using Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) to turn the energy into district heating and electricity.

The concept of combining several energy technologies in order to produce both heat and power has positioned Brønderslev Forsyning among the pioneers within innovative district heating. Utilizing benefits of these innovative technologies enables the district heating plant to achieve a record high energy efficiency, lower energy prices and a future-proof solution that is no longer dependent on fluctuating fossil fuel prices. 

Aalborg CSP is honored to be part of this revolutionary renewable energy adventure, which is yet another example of how innovative Danish technologies set new trends for sustainable energy production – locally as well as globally.
