About Fortum’s Espoo Clean Heat
In Finland, Fortum's next-generation district heating is replacing fossil fuels with smart and flexible solutions that are largely based on renewable electricity: waste heat utilization, heat pumps, and electric boilers. Approximately 40 percent of district heating demand in the region will be met by recycling waste heat from Microsoft's new data centers. Artificial intelligence will optimize the operations of the entire system.
Fortum and the City of Espoo have committed to this transformation journey that will result in carbon-neutral district heating during the 2020s in the Espoo, Kauniainen, and Kirkkonummi regions. A major step towards carbon neutrality will be taken in 2025 when the use of coal will be discontinued.
This project for carbon neutrality is called Espoo Clean Heat. It provides a flagship example of efficient decarbonization and transition to local self-sufficient heating on a large scale.
