Morten is the Business Development Manager at DBDH (Danish Board of District Heating) in charge of all activities in Western Europe. DBDH is a Danish member organization with members from the entire Danish district heating sector. Our mission is “Promoting District Energy for a Sustainable City Transformation”. In this capacity Morten works with governments, cities and other relevant stakeholders to strengthen the development of district energy across Europe. Inspired by the long and successful development and implementation of district heating in Denmark, Morten’s job is to provide value and insights that can further develop both the understanding of what district heating is and the value it can bring to the European society, communities and end users.
“District Heating is the long term and green solution for the future! Modern, well planned and well-structured district heating will play an important part in the future heat profile of any European city with a long term green profile. At the same time district heating functions as an important integrator to the electricity markets”
Morten was Head of Secretariat at District Energy Partnership (DEP) a Danish district energy lobby organization. DEP worked to improve framework conditions for district heating and thereby enhance the roll out in Europe. At DEP, his focus was on both Scotland and England and he therefore understands the district heating developments in both countries in details.
His career began in the district heating industry in Eastern Europe and Russia more than 20 years ago with knowledge building and knowledge transfer. This was followed by 13 years as business development director in a large inward investment organization.
