Heating: Planning our way out of the climate crisis

Heating: Planning our way out of the climate crisis

Grundfos Holding A/S explains here the future of heating in Europe, to be dominated by district heating and heat pumps, as we plan our way out of the climate crisis.

The future of heating in Europe will be dominated by district heating and heat pumps as we progress towards technologies capable of decarbonising heat. For us to succeed on this journey and choose the best and most efficient solutions in the right places, planning is an absolute necessity.

Humanity is facing one of its greatest challenges reaching the Paris Agreement goal of staying below 2° global temperature rise by 2100. In July 2021, the European Union introduced its ‘Fit-for-55’ package which is intended to pave the road for 55% greenhouse gas emission reduction in 2030 compared to 1990 and carbon neutrality by 2050. The European Union, therefore, is a global frontrunner and lighthouse, but the road towards the goals is still bumpy.

Reaching climate neutrality

Getting to climate neutrality is faced with great obstacles such as rising energy demands which today outruns the expansion of renewable energy production, massive fluctuations in energy prices and civil resistance against changes in everyday living conditions. The lack of concrete plans that both take climate and social responsibility into account is, therefore, worrying. [...]
