En række forsøg og erfaringer med at sænke temperaturerne i danske fjernvarmesystemer indgår som en central del af grundlaget for en ny international håndbog om lavtemperaturfjernvarme. Bogens forside viser et foto af fremløbs- og returtemperaturer i Marstal Fjernvarmeværk, som får over halvdelen af sin energi fra et solvarmeanlæg. (Illustration: Maryna Miliushchanka.
