Scientist agree that climate change is caused by humans and that burning fossil fuels is one of the main contributors creating the biggest global challenge we have ever faced. Moving to renewables will have big impact on existing energy infrastructures. The good news is that we can expect innovations from the infrastructure companies as well.
Alliander, a Dutch gas and electricity grid company, is planning to adopt several innovations in their gas network to reduce their carbon footprint. One of them is called Crossovers, where the cooling potential from gas in the network is supplied via a heat exchanger to industries. This way the cooling demand of industries can be largely met without an increased electricity usage for chillers.Read the full article
