District heating

The district heating grid is a closed system where water is alternately heated and cooled.

District heating generated through incineration of waste causes much lower CO2 emissions than most other heating forms.

Of the energy produced from waste incineration at Vestforbrænding 80 % is turned into district heating and 20 % becomes power. Waste thus substitutes fossil fuels elsewhere.

Vestforbrænding's district heating is mainly distributed in our own grid and our supply constitutes an integral part of the coherent district heating system in the Greater Copenhagen Area.

Vestforbrænding is currently extending its district heating grid radically towards the north and the west.
