You are invited to a welcome reception for representatives from the Royal Danish Embassy who will be visiting Rochester on Thursday, September 14th to discuss District Energy Systems (DES). DES are networks of hot and cold water pipes, typically buried underground, that are used to efficiently heat and cool buildings using less energy than if the individual buildings were to each have their own boilers and chillers. Europe, and specifically the Danes are leaders in the development of renewable district energy solutions and as part of the their environmental mission, are willing to share their lessons learned with the City of Rochester.
Within Rochester, the City has a number of DES, operated by both public and private entities. With the anticipated growth associated with the DMC project, the community has an opportunity to think creatively about how best to power, heat and cool this development, ideally in the most efficient and environmentally responsible way possible.
Join us for an inspirational presentation and a chance to ask your energy questions. Hors d’oeuvre and a cash bar will be available, please RSVP at this Eventbrite link.
