District heating is a convenient, trouble-free form of heating. Our district heating network is 1000 km long and provides heating to more than 90 % of all apartment blocks in Göteborg and approximatly 9 000 single-family houses.
District heating is also good for the environment. This is because it is for the most part taken from waste heat, i.e. surplus heat from other industrial processes that would otherwise be lost to the air and sea.
We produce the remaining heat in our own plants. The fuel we use mainly consist of different forms of biofuel and natural gas, and we are continuously working to improve the production system.
