The planned investment aims to restructure the energy-intensive area of Risenga, enabling it to become self-sufficient in energy production alongside the hydro-powered public grid. As part of this initiative, Asker municipality has refurbished and expanded its cooling and heating power plant ("Energisentralen"), boosting its capacity to meet the heating demands of municipal buildings in Risenga. However, exceptions include Bondi primary school, Risenga secondary school, and Risenga nursing home. To address this, the investment concept explores viable alternatives to replace the Solør Bioenergi pellet plant, which currently provides heat to Bleiker school (VGS) and private apartment condominiums.
