8 december 2020

13.00 uur - 14.30 uur

Online via Microsoft Teams

Prijs voor deelnemers:

District heating plays a major role in the transition towards a more sustainable, and circular economy. Sweden is a world leader in heating and cooling infrastructure, with a competitive marketplace, innovative companies, and sustainable solutions. The Netherlands is currently facing a sweeping energy transition, and many challenges will arise. 

With large scale projects on the horizon, we want to share knowledge from how Sweden has tackled the challenges of building up a strong and broad heating and cooling infrastructure? What role can cities play in the heating transition? How can we collaborate in this field? There are many opportunities for closer co-operation and we hope that this webinar will enable us to share experiences and concrete problem-solving for the benefit of the necessary energy transition. 


Did you know? 

• Sweden has extensive experience within district heating, with the first heat networks being developed over 50 years ago. Today, 55% of homes and commercial buildings are heated through district heating solutions. 
• A competitive domestic market means Swedish companies are highly innovative, and many Swedish suppliers are major players globally. 
• In the Netherlands, heat supply from district heating schemes represents a small but growing proportion of total heat supply, with less than 10% of heat being provided by heat networks. 
• The Netherlands has a goal that 1,5 million households (ca 25%) will be connected to new, sustainable heating systems by 2030.
