District Energy:

Sustainable district energy solutions are at the heart of future smart city developments, providing connected and efficient heating and cooling solutions for urbanised populations. Governments and private companies from Europe and the Middle East are striving to reduce the cost and increase the efficiency of energy use to heat and cool residential, commercial and industrial spaces.

Opportunities exist for Swedish companies to export their expertise and products, and work collaborative with local suppliers to implement innovative, connected solutions. Business Sweden can connect your company with local stakeholders to help you grow market share and establish a strong presence in new global markets..

Covid-19 statement:
The current global healthcare crisis has, and will continue to have, an impact on short-term production and supply chains across the district energy sector. While the mid- to long-term impact is relatively unknown, the global trends and shift in focus for the district energy sectors in both the Middle East and Europe, which we examine in our report and blog, will continue to apply. Business Sweden’s local expertise and presence on-the-ground will continue to provide invaluable support for Swedish companies in their goals to expand into new markets and continue to be part of delivering solutions for global economic recovery.
