Vattenfall to build Europe’s largest power-to-heat plant
Utility Vattenfall will invest 100 million euros in a new 120 megawatt power-to-heat plant in Berlin, the company said in a press release. The new unit will replace a hard-coal fired one, and will work like a giant kettle: electricity will be used to heat water, which will then be fed into the city’s heating network, supplying heat to 30,000 households. Construction work started in the second week of November.
