District Energy: The local solution to global challenges 

Climate change, energy security, urban densification, energy poverty, the world is changing and brings along new challenges for industry and policy makers. In this complex and multi-factorial environment, some say the climate crisis may have become the mother of all crises… But where should we start?

With over 75% of the world’s population living in cities, making urban areas smarter, more sustainable and resilient is a pre-requisite to deliver more prosperous societies. The demand for local and sustainable heating sources has never been higher, and the growing need for cooling in hot summer days is evident across the globe. For District Heating and Cooling, that means an era of both tremendous growth and profound transformation!

Across the globe, DHC networks have established themselves as critical enablers to foster the development of local energy transitions, but also as a versatile and competitive decarbonisation solution for cities.

  • What are the market prospects for sustainable and efficient DHC systems around the globe?

·     How is the European energy transition and current energy crisis reshuffling the deck for DHC companies?
