On 31 May 2017, the LIFE+ small scale CHP project team inaugurated the ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) unit at the district heating plant of Bräkne-Hoby in south east Sweden. It was the first ORC unit to be installed in a district heating plant in Sweden. The unit will enable the operating company, Ronneby Environment and Technology, to produce renewable heat for surrounding households and to send locally-produced power to the electric grid. The LIFE project is demonstrating new and yet-to-be-commercialised techniques, including ORC, for small-scale biomass CHP (Combined Heat and Power).
