It is of great importance for the green transition in the metropolitan area that district heating is expanded.
But it is usually an expensive pleasure for the individual household to be connected to the district heating. To help the green transition on the way, Rødovre Municipality now gives a 100 percent discount on the connection in the next district heating area. This corresponds to a discount for the individual household of more than NOK 60,000.
The winter cold has just now settled over Denmark, and the heat has turned up well. In many places, this happens with forms of heating that emit fossil fuels. There are great benefits to switching to district heating.
“District heating is good for both the environment and for the wallet, but it is a big barrier for many households and companies that you have to pay a large one-off contribution to be connected. Now we are trying to do it for free to see if it can attract more people, ”says Jan Kongebro, who is chairman of Rødovre Municipal District Heating Supply and of the Technical and Environmental Committee in Rødovre Municipality.
Rødovre Municipality has set a very ambitious goal that the municipality must be C02 neutral by 2050. Here, district heating is of great importance. It is supplied by VEKS and is currently 70 percent CO2 neutral. It is a realistic goal that district heating is completely CO2 neutral already in 2025.
“We must pass on the globe in a proper condition to our children and grandchildren, and therefore we have to act now. In Rødovre, we are at the forefront, and we use all the tools we have in the drawer. It is absolutely crucial for the green transition in the metropolitan area that we get the district heating expanded, ”says Jan Kongebro.
The current stage for the expansion of district heating, where you can now obtain free connection, is in Valhøj Business District and Espely (households in the area between Rødovre Parkvej, Brandholms Allé, Rødager Allé and Nyholms Allé).
