Green District Heating Program [Hungary]

This policy focuses on creating new renewables-based district heating capacity. Though originally the measure was in place from 2014-2020, it would now be renewed for the 2020-2030 period. While details on emission reduction potential, cost and timing are not available, it seems the scheme is too expensive and the scheme covering 2020-2030 has therefore not been fully developed. At the moment, after six years of functioning, only one biomass-based system exists along with two geothermal energy-based plants.

Recommendations

  • Develop the detailed plan so the scheme can be rolled out.
  • Make energy efficiency the primary goal of the NECP with regards to the buildings sector.
