Saanen-Gstaad district heating system
Environmentally-friendly heating supply for tourist region
As general planner, Gruneko AG has developed a forward-looking, carbon-neutral wood-fired district heating system.
Completed in 2011, the overall system boasts a 12 km heat distribution network that meets the heating requirements of some 170 properties or a total energy demand of 28,000 MWh. Given that over 90% of this heat is produced using wood, the new environmentally-friendly district heating system is helping to safeguard air quality and preserve the integrity of the landscape.
