ICLEI Case Study 117 Improving the district heating system with renewable energy and energy efficiency
In order to meet its energy demands for heating and cooling, the city of Milan decided to expand the
public district heating system with co-generation, combined heat and power plants (CHP). In addition,
the city wished to increase the percentage of renewable energy used and its waste-to-energy solutions
in order to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Through the application of high-efficiency
technologies such as groundwater heat pumps, excellent results were achieved in improving efficiency
and producing a steady energy supply.
