Municipal climate planning

Strategic energy planning is an important tool in the work of the municipalities to transition to a more flexible energy system with less energy use and more renewable energy.

As a starting point mapping of the current circumstances, potential of energy savings, and potential for use of local energy resources is used.

Through several projects, Ea Energy Analyses has dealt with district heating supply and its close connection to the electricity system, both as a part of broad scenario analyses, and in concrete municipal heat planning. Related to this, Ea Energy Analyses has analysed various options for individual heat supply and estimated the competitive conditions for district heating supply.

With expertise in energy systems and energy efficiency, Ea Energy Analyses has worked with strategic energy planning on several levels.
