Introduction to the Summer Closure campaign

HOFOR (formerly known as Københavns Energi) and 10:10 Danmark together took the initiative in 2012 to initiate the campaign Sommer Closure which should put focus on the big potential of saving energy and CO2 by closing down the district heating system correctly during the summer. This year we are running the campaign once again.

It is estimated that more than half of the Danish households heated by district heating systems do not close down their district heating system for summer, or do it wrongly. If done correctly, both the heating bill and the CO2 emission can be avoided. That is why we initiate the Summer Closure campaign.

Sommerluk: get connected with other 10:10 hubs

10:10 Denmark reached out to the 10:10 global community and sought 10:10 hubs to join the Sommerluk Campaign. According to EuroHeat, countries with about 50% of the citizens who use district heating systems are:

  • Iceland (99%)
  • Estonia (53%)
  • Finland (49%)
  • Latvia (64%)
  • Lithuania (60%)
  • Poland (50%)

How to prepare your heating system for the summer

As the weather turns warmer, and you don’t feel that the heat from your radiators is needed anymore, you should turn off your heating system. For many people the 15th of May is the right time, while others find it more appropriate to wait until early June. Regardless the time there will be energy savings to obtain.

Sommerluk.dk kampagnen

Hofor (det forhenværende Københavns Energi) og 10:10 Danmark tog i 2012 sammen initiativet til at gennemføre kampagnen Sommerluk.dk, som skulle være med til at sætte fokus på det store besparelsespotentiale på energi og CO2, der er ved at få sommerlukket korrekt for fjernvarmen.
