CHP based District Heating Market to generate huge revenue over 2017-2024, U.S. to majorly drive the regional landscape

Posted on

The world is taking balanced steps toward the adoption of renewable energy, subject to which District Heating Market size is likely to multiply over the next few years. In a bid to conserve energy, recycle waste energy, and reduce GHG emissions, the government has also mandated a strict regulatory framework. Countries such as China, Russia, Germany, UK, and Denmark have set a deadline for reducing the carbon emissions under their climate action programs, thereby contributing notably towards the business development. According to the European Union, traditional boilers working on natural gas generate more than 260 kg of carbon emissions per kWh, while district heating systems operating through CHP (Combined heat and power) sources emit only 100 kg of carbon dioxide. District heating systems offer various benefits such as enhanced air quality, high quality service, less heat loss, and low operational costs accompanied by enhanced use of green energy, which will stimulate the market trends. As per Global Market Insights, Inc., “District heating industry size, estimated at USD 200 billion in 2016, is set to surpass USD 280 billion by 2024.
