Information on Lichterfelde CHP plant and its history

Lichterfelde CHP plant is located in the south of Berlin and has been modernised several times since it was first commissioned in 1972. In 1988, 1997 and 1998, the three heating blocks were converted from heavy oil to natural gas firing in order to reduce emissions. One of these three blocks has been decommissioned by end of 2015.

Plans for the future of Lichterfelde CHP plant

Vattenfall is building a much more efficient and environmentally compatible combined cycle gas turbine plant in the empty space between the old CHP plant's cooling towers and Barnackufer to ensure it can continue to provide the south of Berlin with an efficient supply of electricity and district heating whilst conserving resources
