Redefining energy services for the energy customer of the future

At Veolia, we imagine potential scenarios on the future energy systems and adapt our business to their likely deployment and evolution. Murat Isikveren’s (Director in charge of Energy at the Markets and Innovation Development Department) intervention during the 23rd Annual Conference of Cogen Europe “Power to Heat” will focus on the value added of Veolia’s approach in delivering the most adapted solutions in energy management to end consumers – that is municipal and industrial clients across the world.

Veolia business models rely on the concept of circular economy. Energy efficiency, including optimized use and reuse of resources, is the most important pillar of such a model. In particular, our District Energy activities allow us to achieve energy efficiency at the scale of a territory through the reduction of final consumption, the optimization of the energy production, and the improvement of the energy mix. On the demand side (buildings operations, industrial processes), our energy performance contracting models and tailored-made offers enable us to commit to concrete and measurable results in terms of increased financial savings, resilience, and inclusiveness.

For that reason, cogeneration technology is an integral part of our offers as it optimizes the use of primary energy within district heating networks as well as it provides cost-effective and resilient heat and electricity within industrial and tertiary settings. CHP, especially when using renewables, by-products or waste heat, is a part of a trajectory towards both greater decentralization and adaptability of future energy systems, while taking into consideration and preserving individual needs and involvement of end-users.

This cannot be achieved without an adequate regulatory framework. In this sense, the “Clean Energy Package” goes in the right direction, provided it contains suitable guarantees for a smooth delivery of energy efficiency services, including those on district heating networks, and safeguards the role for CHP in the decarbonisation of heating and power sectors.
