Britain's Carbon Trust launches business to recycle industrial heat

Britain's government-backed Carbon Trust has launched a commercial subsidiary company, Connective Energy, to begin to use some of the waste heat produced at UK industrial sites by supplying it customers. The three-way joint venture is with Mitsui Babcock Energy Limited and Triodos Renewables.

Decentralized, solar-generated electricity could be answer to growth in European electricity demand in summer, particularly to deal with consumption peaks caused by weather conditions, which in turn cause supply interruptions -- according to Dr Winfried Hoffmann, President of the European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA).
