An affordable and environmentally friendly alternative
Voltan Energy is challenging district heating with its new type of heating and cooling service based on ground source heat energy. "Half of the Helsinki region’s CO2 emissions come from district heating, the price of which has also risen sharply. We want to offer an alternative to district heating,"says Miikka Lemmetty, CEO of Voltan. The system is more cost-efficient and sustainable than district heating. It brings individual apartment buildings lifecycle savings of hundreds of thousands of euros and enables cooling in their homes.
In sales, Voltan focuses on fast-scaling new construction projects through cooperation with construction companies. Voltan Energy initially aims to build about 30 to 50 sites per year in Finland. "This would mean an annual reduction in CO2 emissions of about 1,200 tonnes," Lemmetty reminds. In the near future, Voltan intends to expand to other Nordic countries and possibly also to Central Europe. In Sweden, geothermal energy is already a familiar phenomenon in large properties.
Voltan Energy (Voltan Lähienergia Oy) is a new decentralized energy company that implements ground source heating and cooling systems for large properties. It acts as a long-term heat producer for apartment buildings.
