Extension of district heating network on Bornholm
“Using KommuneKredit to fund our extension has been crucial for Bornholms Energi & Forsyning’s possibility of carrying out a major transition of the energy system on the island, which ensures a green, stable and future-proof heat supply for our citizens.” Rasmus Sielemann Christensen, CEO of the municipally owned utility company Bornholms Energi & Forsyning.
The extension of the district heating network supports Bornholm’s goal of becoming a carbon-neutral community in 2025 and a zero-emission community in 2035. The loan has been approved by KommuneKredit’s Green Bond Committee for our pool of green loans used in our green bond issues.
“On Bornholm, we decided in 2008 to go for the long haul that is required for creating fundamentally environment-friendly changes that will have an impact on our future.”
