Renewable and highly efficient CHP and District heating in Kristianstad

Kristianstad

Detailed description of the Good Practice

The Kristianstad municipal company C4 Energy Group has during the last 30 year built up a substantial district energy operation. High efficient CHP solution, close to 100 %, and the overall system design give an outstanding positive environmental impact. The fuel mix in the system as per today is more than 99 % based on renewable fuels. Thru competitive pricing and environmental profile the market demand for district heat supply is continuously high.
The main production units are located at the Allöverket plant.
Two CHP boilers 75 MWth is operated mainly on wood chips from forest felling and residues from different wood manufacturing industries. Yearly some 350 GWh of district heat and 75 GWh of electricity is produced.

In the year 2008 about 85 % of all apartments and about 8 % of the single-family houses in Kristianstad were connected to the district heating system. Many houses were heated by oil before the conversion to district heating. Kristianstad municipality has a government grant for connecting small houses to the grid (100 €) until 2012. As an alternative there is a tax reduction.
