Connecting the source and users of thermal energy in the most responsible way requires fast, durable and efficient systems which also need to be adaptive to the local circumstances, choices and expectations. Whenever energy is needed in several locations, networks are necessary to serve those needs.
Smart networks are required in order to anticipate changes in the case of fragmented large and/or complex combinations of demand. Replacement of existing networks occurs where they were not as durable as the buildings they were intend to serve. The value of the networks should not be underestimated. It’s the environmental capital for the community when it comes to renewable energy. Just the same networks of various stakeholders (energy users/-producers, system suppliers, political-, technical-, environmental representations and other interest groups) can create sustainable solutions to our energy needs. Utilizing the power of physical networks that allow any type of renewable thermal generation to reach any combination of users.
