Foundation laid for geothermal energy in metropolitan Copenhagen

With the ongoing European energy crises, it has become even more important to develop the fourth large renewable energy source, geothermal, which can supply millions of European homes with local, green and price stable heating

Today, the geothermal energy company Innargi, established by A.P. Moller Holding in 2017, has entered a framework agreement with VEKS, CTR and HOFOR to deliver geothermal district heating to metropolitan Copenhagen. Innargi is already planning to build Europe’s largest geothermal district heating facility in Aarhus, and this new agreement paves the way for the next large scale facility in Denmark.

“First and foremost, this means even more green, stable in price district heating for a great many customers. But the geothermal energy project in metropolitan Copenhagen will also make geothermal energy an attractive source of energy for many medium sized district heating companies nearby.”
Samir Abboud, CEO at Innargi

In EU, heating accounts for 432 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions every year. Geothermal district heating can play a key role in transforming the European heat supply and thereby contribute to solving the energy crisis. In Germany alone, geothermal has the potential to cover up to 25% of the district heating.
