As of 2018, Kraftringen has been able to supply district heating entirely produced using renewable fuels.

For some of the smaller heat plant networks, the fuel is biogas a fuel that has been hit hard by price hikes and lack of supply, not least on account of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

To ensure continuous operation, this winter we are supplementing the parts of the district heating network that are powered with biogas in Södra Sandby, Ljungbyhed, and Bjärred with alternative bio-oil boilers. Everything to secure hot water and heat for our customers throughout the winter, regardless of what happens on the international gas market. the statement read.

The bio-oil boilers are already in place and are undergoing testing to ensure that everything is operable for the upcoming heating season.
