Renewable Energy

When we talk about renewable energy, we talk about energy from biomass and the reuse of heat emerging from for instance factory processes, amongst others. A good example is the modern waste centres with energy recovery. As such, an increasing amount of households and buildings are connected to so-called heat nets. Here, the heat that emerges from the burning of residual waste is used to heat homes and buildings. Automation and telemetry are important components for the construction and maintenance of bio-centres and heat networks, and at CoNet we have a lot of knowledge at our disposal to this effect.
