District Energy

2.3.3.	District Energy

Innovative Technologies. Technical Expertise. Whether you are guided by meeting CO2 reduction targets or by providing better service to your end users, district energy networks reduce cities' carbon footprint and their dependence on fossil fuels. Our team of experts will work with local authorities to tailor a district energy solution from concept design stage to full operation that will reduce energy consumption on a large scale.

As the global leader in heating and cooling networks, Veolia has unique expertise in their design, construction, operation and maintenance. This is coupled with our extensive know-how in innovative technologies and managing energy supplies, ensuring we are continually providing services to end users.

Plugging in Veolia's district energy solutions

With a focus on renewables, environmental sustainability and maximising service efficiencies we can leverage our experience in designing, building, operating, and maintaining heating and cooling networks to plug-in to your urban environment to help solve these challenges.
  • Leveraging performance in the urban environment
    Urban networks save energy and preserve the environment in many ways. They replace thousands of individual cooling systems with a modern, reliable industrial system, and they increasingly make use of renewable energy (biomass) and recovered energy (waste, industrial gaseous effluent, etc.). They can also be associated with combined heat and power, or cogeneration plants, which are much more efficient than conventional methods.
  • Sustainable development for cities
    Major cities around the world recognise urban networks are vital to the development of today's cities and are utilising them as a way of meeting energy saving and CO2 reduction targets.
  • Employing the use of efficient energy mixes
    At Veolia we have unique expertise in diverse forms of energy – including coal, gas and biomass – to develop efficient energy mixes. Our technical expertise and unequivocal commitment to quality ensures an ongoing availability of affordable energy as well improved relationships with end users.
