Energy and district heating

Ask us if you need help with:

At Envidan, we have extensive experience with advanced energy plants and the design of these is among our primary competencies. We are at the forefront of identifying the best technologies for the specific installation and we provide BAT recommendations at a specialist level.

We have a wealth of experience as a developer and provide top-notch developer advice. We are also contractors and provide turnkey services, so we know how energy installation projects should be carried out. This means that we can be involved right from the initial phase, working on design, drafting tender documents, and contracting with suppliers. At the same time, our experience in construction management, supervision, and occupational health and safety also allows us to follow projects through.

With an in-depth understanding of your industry, we look at the whole system and ensure that the challenges are highlighted. At the same time, we are also looking at whether you can benefit from storage or sector coupling, for example.

When designing new facilities, we prepare all relevant documents from scratch, but we can also assist in renewing and updating existing surveys, reports, approvals, etc. When we provide turnkey contracts, we put together a multidisciplinary team that includes process technologists as well as construction specialists. This ensures the best process in a well-thought-out and buildable project.

Reach your climate goals with energy-efficient projects

At Envidan, we are passionate about energy-efficient projects, such as when wastewater becomes district heating with renewable energy and when the plant can modulate and provide system services. Then electrification and sector coupling have ensured a major contribution to the green transition.

Does your utility or municipality need help reaching your energy and climate goals? We are happy to help with the expansion of storage tanks, heat pumps, electric boilers, or biomass systems. We can also help you identify your needs if you’re not sure what the right solution is for you. Learn more about the possibilities here.

Accumulation tanks

Accumulation tanks at energy plant in Fårevejle, Denmark

 

A storage tank acts like a hot water tank, allowing you to store heat for shorter or longer periods.

This way, heat pumps or other heating systems can reduce the amount of start and stop procedures and instead use the hot water from the storage tank to reduce heat loss.

Among other things, we can help with:

  • Sizing of accumulation tanks
  • Energy calculations of accumulation tanks

Heating pumps

Heating pump with pipe systems at energy plant

 

A heating pump is a system that converts energy into heat. We provide consulting for projects involving air-to-water and water-to-water heating pumps

A heating pump can run on outdoor air, wastewater, drinking water, geothermal and other sources. In addition, heating pumps can be combined with renewable energy and storage solutions.

Among other things, we can help with:

  • Project planners
  • Business cases
  • Requirements and tender documents
  • Construction management, supervision and commissioning

Electric kettles

Electrode boiler for industrial purpose

 

With an electric kettle, you can down-regulate to produce heat on the kettle when electricity prices are low.

In this way, an electric kettle can be an efficient way to utilize energy when there is a surplus in the grid.

Among other things, we can help with:

  • Energy calculations
  • Tenders for electric kettles
  • Design, planning and supervision

Biomass plants

Hand holding wood pellets

 

A biomass plant runs on biomass, such as wood chips, straw and wood pellets.

As biomass is degradable, it contributes positively to the consumption of renewable energy and can be a step towards achieving the utility’s climate goals.

Among other things, we can help with:

  • Fuel selection
  • Dimensioning the system
