The EU Clean Energy Package

In November, 2016, the European Commission proposed a package of measures to keep the European Union competitive as the clean energy transition is delivered and changes global energy markets.

The proposal has three main goals: putting energy efficiency first, achieving global leadership in renewable energies and providing a fair deal for consumers.

District Heating and Cooling

District heating is a heating system consisting of a pipe network, filled with hot water, and heat sources (from residual heat or a heating plant). The hot water is circulated by pumps, from the heating plant to the client and back again to the heating plant. A heat exchanger at the customer transfers the heat from the district heating network to the building’s own heating and hot water systems. The return water continues out through the return pipe and is pumped back to the heating plant, where it again is heated.
