The district heating service
Heat to cities in a sustainable,
convenient and safe way
With its proven ability to deliver environmental and economic benefits, district heating is an energy choice that improves quality of life.
Turin (metropolitan area)
The Parma district heating network is mainly served by the heat produced by the combustion of the non-recoverable fraction of waste within the PAI cogeneration plant. In addition to this, there are the integration and reserve power plants in Strada S. Margherita, located inside the Iren Group headquarters, and in Via Lazio, mainly used during periods of maximum thermal demand. An additional, stand-alone network is fed by the Campus thermal power plant.
District heating in Genoa is supplied by the Sampierdarena combined cycle plant, which is the first combined cycle plant in Italy.
In Piacenza, Iren Energia has the power plant in Via Diete di Roncaglia; heat production is also guaranteed by the cogeneration plant Levante of the A2A Group. From 2020, the heat produced by the Borgoforte waste-to-energy plant is also available.
