The current discussions on energy all too often hinge toward the energy use in transport and especially the demand and production of electricity. The demand and supply of heat remains largely underexposed, this is not justified as heating (and cooling) accounts for 46% of total final energy demand worldwide.
In an attempt to compensate for this lack of attention YES-DC will reflect on the industrial heat utilization of a major power plant in the Netherlands and the residential district heating market in the Netherlands. We conclude with a project that aims to bring these two worlds together by means of the “Heat roundabout” project connecting the Rotterdam harbor area with the greenhouses in the Westland area and the city of Den Haag.
