Bečej is one of five municipalities in Serbia which plan to implement a pilot project for using geothermal water for district heating, its website said.

Analyses results by the Faculty of Mining and Geology from Belgrade showed Bečej is the only location with cost-effectiveness potential, local officials said at a press conference.

The project’s study was financed by Icelandic–German company GTN with German development bank KfW, and now partners need to be found to invest EUR 3.4 million, municipality parliament head Nenad Tomašević said.

He added gas usage would be cut by 60% to 70% and heating would become cheaper.
