The Control Engineering Group at Luleå University of Technology is the coordinator of the OPTi Project and established first contacts with the DHC+ Technology Platform during 2016. Since the DHC sector is an important application area of our research, it is important for us to engage in collaborations and network with experts in the area. During the EHP Congress in Glasgow 2017, the discussions with DHC+ member provided us with new insights, networks, and most importantly, with a platform to contribute to the area. Becoming a member of DHC+ was therefore a natural step to consolidate our research tracks in the direction of energy efficiency in the DHC sector. We are now looking forward to contribute to the Platform.
