I klimaets tegn - Et opgør med vanetænkning i dansk varmeplanlægning

Christian Rahbek

Studenteropgave: Speciale


The thesis is about heat planning in Denmark in a historical as well as a contemporary context. Taking its point of departure in a short account of the development of energy as a notion, this account is used in combination with institutional analysis for a superficial analysis of the history of heat planning in Denmark. Thus, it can be stated that there are four general objectives which alternatingly have been dominating in the planning, and it is also set out why and when these shifts have been taking place. In the light of the historical experience, it is stated that heat planning permanently primarily takes its point of departure in the supply and not in the demand. In the thesis, a number of principles for up-to-date heat planning are set up which describe a combination of supply side management and demand side management. Taking its point of departure in these principles, it is examined whether the heat planning strategy of Slagelse kommune (the municipality of Slagelse), which is in course of preparation, is capable of living up to the change of the demands due to the change in climate or whether Slagelse kommune has not yet broken with the traditional way of heat planning. The thesis concludes that the strategy does not live up the new principles, which is why a new proposal is put forward as to how the challenges can be managed.
