A Small Self-Governed Freetown May lead the Way for Heating Plants in Denmark

The free town known as Christiania, which originally used wood burning stoves to create heat, is now leading the way in heating plants. The new project allows residents to monitor their heating system online.

This system is not the final outcome for the free town, but a temporary solution as they try to stray away from wood-burning panels and make their way towards a possible combination of heat pumps, wind, solar and large energy storage.

Christiania is a self-proclaimed autonomous anarchist district.

The free town is divided into 15 local areas of different size, some areas have ten residents, the largest has more than 80. Each area is responsible for the close decisions in the local community.

There are roughly seven hundred adults and two hundred and fifty children who reside in Christiania.
