Danfoss looks to biomass district heating

The market for biomass-based district heating systems is mainly concentrated in Austria, Southern Germany, and Northern Italy, and it is expected to grow by more than 15% per annum during the coming years, says the company.

The UK Carbon Trust has unveiled plans to develop on-site renewable energy projects with local authorities, health trusts and other public sector bodies. Its new venture, Partnerships for Renewables (PfR), will partner with private sector organizations to develop, build and operate wind and other renewable energy projects on public sector land.
