Europe within the confines of the European Union plus Norway and Switzerland is one of the world’s largest energy markets. It is also highly dependent on fossil-fuel imports due to lack of sufficient indigenous sources of supply.

As Barney from 'How I met your mother" would say - Challange.......accepted! &... Read more...

The idea itself is fairly straight forward - district heating systems produce and pipe steam, hot water or chilled water through a dedicated underground piping network to heat or cool buildings in  given area/community.
