Digitalization, the key to a successful heating transition
The business challenges to win with the heating and digital transitions are enormous yet essential. This article summarises an E-book, Zero Friction written on how digital transformation is key to a successful heating transition.
The state of the heating transition
We are living in an energy crisis today. When discussing the energy transition, heating is always seen as the underdog. It is still perceived as a by-product of electricity in Europe. Net Zero initiatives driven by climate change activities have rightly forced us to think holistically about energy and carbon emissions. It is clear that without a successful heating transition, there will be no climate neutrality. Heat networks, also known as district heating systems, have long been considered a promising solution to reduce carbon emissions and improve building energy efficiency.
European parties like Euroheat and Power are committed to making the heating transition successful by releasing a 10-point plan that calls for revision of the outdated EU heating and cooling strategy and the implementation of concrete regulatory and financial instruments to support the deployment of renewable heat solutions.
Pieces of the puzzle to make the heating transition successful
The heating and cooling revolution is real and essential to meet the Net Zero goals. A number of dimensions within any type of heating company are vital to success. This is what we define as the pieces of the heating transition puzzle.
