In Sweden there is a potential to double the amount of industrial excess heat from todays 5 TWh that is delivered into district heating networks.

The paper presents result from qualitative interviews as well as answers through a more quantitative web based survey which has been sent out to stakeholders in existing Swedish industrial excess heat collaborations.
