In my blog ‘How will energy look in 2030? My 10 predictions for the next 10 years!’ I predicted that by 2030 all city centres will have some form of fifth generation heat network – taking heat networks share of heating beyond the 18% currently forecast by the government! In the article I didn’t go into too much detail about how exciting fifth generation heat network technology really is so I…read full article
Electric vehicle owners may soon be able to pull into a fueling station, plug their car in, go to the restroom, get a cup of coffee and in 10 minutes, drive out with a fully charged battery, according…read full article

It’s common consensus in the tech industry that the days of cars as we know them—powered by gas, driven by humans, and individually owned by all who want and can afford one—are…read full article
Electric motors are implicated in two major decarbonisation options involving electrification: electric vehicles (EVs) and heat pumps. This will lead to a significant market growth, as well as growing…read full article
ORC (Organic Rankine Cycle) technology made possible by SWEP brazed plate heat exchangers is being used in Sweden to transform waste heat into renewable electricity. This high efficiency and low maintenance way to produce sustainable electricity is being adopted by district heating systems around the world. Read how Ronneby Municipality put this innovative technology to use.read full business practice
Royal Pride Holland is using the J624 GS engines to power the greenhouse's new cogeneration plant. Some of the power generated is used for lighting for the tomatoes, but most is supplied to the public power grid. Because the waste heat from the engines can be used at very low temperatures, and the CO2 in its exhaust gas can also be used, the overall level of efficiency is 95 percent.read full business practice
Generating clean power in Japanese incineration plant: When the Japanese-based company Daiichi Jitsugy got a request from Ertec to install an ORC system in their new waste incineration plant, the company’s engineers knew that they would need a heat exchanger out of the ordinary.read full business practice
The Investor Confidence Project Europe unlocks access to financing for the building, industry, district energy and street lighting markets by standardizing how energy efficiency projects are developed, documented and measured.

ICP protocols are standardising the way energy efficiency projects are developed, documented and measured following best practice and involving independent verification. Protocols are not interfering with the technical side of projects.
The Street Lighting protocol covers the energy associated with both controlling, powering and lighting the luminaire, and with energy associated with providing…read full business practice
