Metropolitan Copenhagen, Denmark
project • Geothermal
Innargi has entered into a framework agreement with district heating companies VEKS, CTR, and HOFOR to try and create a breakthrough for geothermal heating in the Copenhagen metropolitan area.
- To begin with, the parties involved have signed a letter of intent which describes the intention to work actively and purposefully towards establishing geothermal energy in metropolitan Copenhagen.
- Initially, a potential of 120 to 240 MW is expected, covering the yearly heating of 35,000 to 75,000 households.
- If everything goes according to plan, the first of several geothermal plants is expected to be ready for district heating in 2026.
“We hope that we are moving towards a breakthrough for geothermal energy in the Copenhagen metropolitan area. It is definitely needed. The partnership with Innargi adds new competence, and it is a good step in the right direction. If it succeeds, we are fully on the way to a 100% green district heating network in metropolitan Copenhagen.”
