Can we actually build a reliable and at the same time affordable and climate-friendly energy system?
Hans Korteweg and his colleagues at COGEN Europe say ‘Yes!’. Actually they’ve made it their mission to implement this vision in Europe. And as the organisations name suggest their primary focus therefore is on so called Cogeneration meaning the combined production of heat and electricity.  In this episode you will learn what we actually mean, when we talk about cogeneration, the fields and industries which could benefit from this approach and it’s potential for Europes economy and job market.
