Euroheat and Power have a global reach in the national district heating and cooling associations, utilities operating district energy systems, industrial associations and companies, manufacturers, universities, research institutes and consultancies active in the sector. Having a relationship in the European market through Euroheat allows us to share knowledge and best practices with fellow district energy providers, strengthening the common goal of sustainable energy.
APUEA convenes stakeholders from a variety of sectors to advance sustainable urban energy, promotes market development for sustainable urban energy systems, shares global and regional experiences and best practices; and facilitates collaboration on sustainable urban energy projects. Being in the Asian market allows us to aid in the development of district energy within the region, sharing our knowledge and knowhow to developing cities.
Tarsheed, a national campaign for the conservation and efficient use of water and electricity in Qatar. Tarsheed shares information, awareness, encouragement, and practical lifestyle suggestions, to reduce daily consumption of water and electricity, thereby reducing annual national consumption levels per capita.
