Interview: How district heating could help Europe's green recovery

A reboot of Europe's energy system is one part of the EU Green Deal the European Commission aims to fast track as part of any post-lockdown economic recovery programme. Paul Voss, managing director of the Brussels-based trade association Euroheat and Power, argues that district heating and cooling (DHC) networks should play a key role in cutting the greenhouse gas emissions associated with keeping our homes and workplaces warm. And with buildings accounting for some 40% of energy use across Europe, the potential is enormous.
