A public-private partnership was launched in Warsaw for using waste heat from the subway system to heat homes and buildings. The alliance including Danfoss, GEA DK, Bjerg Akitektur, Elogic, and Rambøll Group aims to make Poland’s capital and other cities more sustainable.
Industrial equipment manufacturer Danfoss signed a memorandum of understanding with the Capital City of Warsaw, Royal Danish Embassy in Poland, Metro Warszawskie and Rambøll Group to make the Polish capital more sustainable. The first step in the partnership, consisting of public and private entities, will focus on exploring the possibility of reusing excess heat from the Warsaw Metro system to heat private homes and buildings and water.
A feasibility study will be carried out with funds from the Export and Investment Fund of Denmark’s Green Accelerator Program, the company said. Danfoss, based in Nordborg, Denmark, provides energy efficiency solutions.
