District heating is produced mainly from burning waste. Also utilized is waste heat from industry, wood chippings, gas from refuse dumps, electricity and oil. Gross production amounted to 1,797 GWh last year, up two per cent from the previous year.
The net production of district heating in 1997 amounted to 1,401 GWh in 1997, slightly down from the year before. Of that amount, 63 per cent was produced by the incineration of waste and exploiting waste heat from industry. Consumption of district heating totalled 1,282 GWh, one percent less than the previous year. The decline may be attributable to last year being warmer than the year before.
