CROSSING BRIDGES: REINVENTING HEAT SUPPLY

In the debate about the energy transition there is always sufficient focus on zero-carbon electricity. Wind and solar are going to replace coal and gas as sources for electricity production, even to the extent that The Netherlands are aiming at 70% renewable electricity by 2030.

But how about our future heat supply? In the process of moving away from fossil fuels, what is the heat transition going to look like? Part of the heat demand can be met by electrification, but certainly not all. How large is the role of district heating and local and regional heat network going to be? What types of sources are going to feed into those networks? To what extent do heat networks and geothermal projects need each other? Where is industry going to get its high temperature heat from? A role for hydrogen is often suggested here. Lots of interesting questions to be answered!
