Raalte is another municipality that is going off the gas grid. To this end, in the Westdorp neighbourhood a sports club, doctors’ surgery, school and housing association have teamed up. The municipality asked CE Delft to examine the options available in Westdorp for heating and cooking without natural gas. For heating there are several options, including HE green-gas or hydrogen boilers, heat pumps and a heat grid. Calculations show that in Westdorp electrical heat pumps come at the lowest total cost to society in 2050.
