The CO2 Friendly CityJørgen Hvid, RAMBØLL talks about Nordhavnen as a CO2 friendly city.
The C02 friendly city of Nordhavnen will be a place where it is easy to have a green conscience. It will be easy to install environmentally sustainable energy, heating and cooling solutions both in businesses and private homes.
In the short term, well-known and well-tested sustainable energy sources will be used. In the long term, the district’s own energy infrastructure – ie a shared district heating system, a remote cooling system and heat stores – will ensure that the district will be able to use the future’s most appropriate sustainable technologies and sources of energy, for instance geothermal heating with heat coming from the ground deep below Nordhavnen, solar energy, wind energy and groundwater used for cooling purposes.
Power consumption in Nordhavnen will be kept at a minimum through the integration of information technology to control and monitor it. The actual electricity required will be generated by wind turbines and, in the long term, also by solar cells. The future city of Nordhavnen will be a world leader in the use of sustainable technologies.
