District heating and cooling plays a significant role in the supply of low-carbon heating and cooling in Europe. While having an average market share of 10 percent in Europe, it is particularly widespread in North, Central and Eastern Europe, where market shares often reach 50 percent and more. On average, over 80 per cent of heat supplied by district heating originates from renewable energy sources or heat recovery (i.e. from electricity production or industrial processes).
