About district heating

How district heating works

District heating is a climate-smart energy system which heats over half of all commercial and residential buildings in Sweden. The district heating network is a network of several thousand kilometres of pipes, transporting hot water under our feet through our towns. The hot water then heats up the buildings without you having to do a thing.

We produce district heating from what would otherwise go to waste. For example, this can be waste from forests in the form of branches and wood chips, waste timber from building sites or surplus heat from industry or data centres. District heating from Vattenfall is therefore easy and convenient for you as well as sustainable for urban areas and communities.
