Geothermal energy – an untapped renewable energy source with great potential

Geothermal energy comes from the Earth’s interior, and in Denmark, it can be used for district heating. Essentially, it entails harnessing subsurface heat – similar to how we harness energy from the sun and wind today – to serve as a sustainable heating alternative to fossil fuels such as coal and gas.

Radiators with green heating

Geothermal plants transfer heat from the subsurface to a district heating grid. The closer the plants are located to the district heating grid, the better the thermal energy can be exploited.
