Project: Skanderborg-Hørning, Denmark

Project • Geothermal

Innargi has signed an agreement with the first consumer-owned district heating company in Denmark, Skanderborg-Hørning Fjernvarme A.m.b.a, about researching the potential for developing geothermal energy for district heating. The goal is to make district heating in Skanderborg and Hørning even more sustainable and to secure low, stable energy prices in the future.

In brief

  • The district heating company’s board of directors has initiated the project with a master plan to be ready sometime during 2023.
  • Part of the project is to connect the district heating networks of Skanderborg and Hørning into one.
  • The municipality of Skanderborg is a member of the climate partnership DK2020 who works on translating the goals of the Paris Agreement into concrete actions.

“Today, we only use locally produced, certified biomass. And we will also do that in the future, but we need to burn less and be less dependent on the price of biomass. Therefore, we wish for geothermal energy to be an important source for our district heating. Geothermal energy is a climate friendly, local, and very price stable source of heating able to deliver 24/7 and 365 days a year.”
