The local heating plant in Rottne, a city close to Växjö, is one of STORM’s demo sites and this year the plant has its twenty year anniversary!
To celebrate this, STORM project partner Växjö Energi, organises an open house on 26th of August. During that day you can experience guided tours of the local heating plant and you can find out how the production works, as well as learn about the impact of the smart district heating controller.
