FACTS ABOUT GREEN DISTRICT HEATING

Each year, CTR’s district heating system uses approx. 358,000 m3 of oil less than the amount of fuel consumed in individual oil-based heating systems with an efficiency of 90%. This corresponds to approx. 955,000 tonnes of CO2 a year.

In 2007, approx. 57% of the district heating supplied in the metropolitan area could be considered excess heat from refuse incineration and power generation.

In 2007, approx. 35% of the district heating supplied in the metropolitan area was based on CO2-neutral fuels.

If a CHP advantage based on 200% heat efficiency is used in the calculation, 65% of the district heating supplied in the metropolitan area was CO2-neutral in 2007.
