District energy & waste heat
If the urbanisation trend continues and appropriate investments are in place, almost half of Europe’s heat demand could be met by district energy by 2050.
There is on average 3 times more renewable and excess heat available than is required to meet high levels of district energy supply
A transition to district energy systems, combined with energy-saving measures, could contribute as much as 58% of the carbon dioxide emission reductions required in the energy sector by 2050.
