The EU Taxonomy is taking shape, impacting many industries. The framework is not complete yet and some parts are under development, making it challenging for the stakeholders that want to/need to comply with it. In Sweden, district heating is a technology for providing buildings with heat and hot water, it is an established technology and large investments in capital assets have been made. With the EU Taxonomy a number of questions arise and owners of district heating systems need to understand if their assets are Taxonomy aligned or not. If the answer is not, this might imply that additional investments are needed.
In the project Applied EU Taxonomy – the case of district heating, financed by the Swedish Innovation Agency Vinnova, the EU Taxonomy compliance of an existing district heating network is analyzed. The project started in the Fall of 2022 and has a lifetime of 2 years. Read more about the project kick-off >
The project is planning a series of webinars to channel the information identified in it to a larger audience. The first one is taking place on January 26th at 10.00 CET. At the webinar, more information about the project, its co-creating approach with a supporting team (composed of representatives from the DH sector, DH industry associations, Investors in DH, and others) are provided, and the first results from the project are presented. As the first task, the project has conducted a literature review on EU Taxonomy and DH. These results will be discussed at the webinar.
