Vision document on Sustainable Heat and Cold*

At the request of a cluster of major Dutch trade associations, CE Delft has drawn up a vision document on the potential for using sustainably produced heat and cold in the Netherlands and for promoting such use. The document explains how the Dutch government’s and European Commission’s environmental targets can be secured through utilisation of sustainable heat and cold. It examines the overall potential and costs, trends in technologies and markets, pertinent legislation and what the relevant organisations are themselves already doing to promote use of sustainable heat and cold. This vision document sets out what (further) steps are required to secure the targets for use of sustainable heat and cold and how the government and the sector can contribute.
