Decentralised Energy 2014 13 May, London

in Share this DECENTRALISED ENERGY 2014 13 MAY, LONDON Decentralised energy refers to energy that is generated off the main grid, including micro-renewables, heating and cooling. It can refer to energy from waste plants, combined heat and power, district heating and cooling, as well as geothermal, biomass or solar energy. Schemes can serve a single building or a whole community, even being built out across entire cities.
