Low carbon communities

The modern community needs to be sustainable. The increasing scarcity of resources and the uncertainty around energy costs means that all communities need to focus on how they use and reuse resources. District Heating Systems are becoming increasingly popular internationally as a means of helping communities reduce environmental impact, increase energy efficiency and manage costs.

Veolia's district heating solutions are designed to deliver the best energy efficiency for the communities they serve. They can supply centralised heating and cooling and/or electricity. Our systems are often based on Combined Heat and Power (CHP) which captures waste heat from generators to reduce the heating costs and can include wood biomass solutions.

District Heating Systems are typically used in housing developments including apartment blocks but can also be used across wider areas such as business parks, university campuses, hospitals or entire districts.
