Description:

The Public Power Corporation (PPC) has initiated the implementation of a cogeneration programme in its lignite-fired plants by setting up a district heating network in northern Greece. Specifically: - Medium pressure steam from the lignite-fired power station of Agios Demetrios in northern Greece is already used for the district heating of part of the nearest town of Kozani. - Medium pressure steam from the lignite-fired power station of Ptolemais is used for the district heating of approximately 45% of the nearest town of Ptolemais. There are plans to develop a DH network in the town of Florina (70 MWth) and another to supply heat to the town of Amyntaio (40 MWth). In addition, the DH unit for the town of Megalopolis (Peloponnese), with a capacity of 20 MWth has been approved for cofinancing by the OPE.
