“Geothermal District Heating and Cooling Renewable district heating and cooling systems, using geothermal resources”


The District Heating Company of Szeged (SZETÁV) supplies 27,256 apartments and 433 non-residential end-users with heating and domestic hot water. Since 2018, SZETÁV and its partners have been carrying out Europe's largest geothermal district heating project. The result of the project will be a 60% less polluting, more economically operating system that relies on local energy sources.
