Increasing the succes rate of steam networks

Stoomnet

In New York, no one thinks rising steam from the pavement is odd. However, it is a waste of energy. In the Netherlands we strive to decrease this loss of energy by the construction of environmentally friendly steam networks. The government has declared the realisation of projects surrounding residual steam as a focal point. This setup connects with the Energy Agreement of 2015, which contains agreements about the reducing of carbon dioxide emissions.

“But,” says Emile Peters, advisor and partner of Triple Bridge, “the road to an economy that relies partially on residual steam is still long. Companies, providers and buyers involved all want to get to this economy, but do not put a lot of effort into it. Yet I am hopeful we will have more steam networks in ten years.”
