In this policy brief, Ole Odgaard, senior adviser and member of the ThinkChina Working Group on Green Growth, examines the Chinese district heating system and assesses its challenges and need for new regulatory reforms as well as technical solutions. The potential for further collaboration with Danish public and private stakeholders is highlighted.

The Policy Brief

  • Argues that Chinese district heating system stakeholders lack clear guidelines and that sub- optimized district heating systems have emerged in many areas;

  • Proposes that a closer co-operation between Denmark and China on technical and regulatory matters could advance and benefit the commercial exchange between the two countries.
