Our experience

Vattenfall has the experience to take on the largest, most complex district heating projects.


Amsterdam set out their heat decarbonisation journey in a joint venture with Vattenfall. Looking back 24 years later, this partnership has resulted in a reduction in carbon emissions of 75% and has been accepted across the city with new developers and residents as part of the landscape and a new norm.


At the end of 2009, Vattenfall and the city-state of Berlin came together on a wide-reaching climate protection agreement. The goal was to reduce Vattenfall’s CO2 emissions in the city centre by 50% by the end of 2020 when compared with levels in 1990. Vattenfall reached this goal in late 2017 – three years ahead of schedule.

Working with Related Argent and Barnet Council in London, Vattenfall will design, build and operate a new district heat network for one of Europe’s largest redevelopments - Brent Cross Town. This will supply low-carbon heating and hot water to 6,700 new homes and 3 million square feet of new office, retail and commercial space.
