The total heated area in Denmark has increased over time, but actual heating consumption has decreased.That is, buildings use less energy per square meter today. This is due to:

  • tightened energy regulation
  • energy savings, and
  • combined heat and power production, where excess heat from electricity generation is used for heating.
