ROTTERDAM – District Energy

The Heat is On in the Dutch market for district energy. The current market share of 4-5% is expected to multiply in coming years. Driven by political decisions to reduce the reliance of gas as the main source of heat, a series of district heating projects are currently underway across the country. Join us for a commercial seminar to facilitate access to the Dutch market for district energy, thereby developing the capacity in the supply chain.

The Heat is On in the Dutch market for district energy. The current market share of 4-5% is expected to multiply in coming years. Driven by political decisions to reduce the reliance of gas as the main source of heat, a series of district heating projects are currently underway across the country. Some are very large, requiring more preparation in terms of technical design and business modelling. Others are rapidly approaching the stages of procurement, installation and operation. They all have one thing in common – they involve substantial business opportunities to suppliers of systems and services.

FACILITATING MARKET ACCESS

Now is the time to strengthening the presence in Dutch market for district energy. There are already signs of capacity constraints in the supply chain. Some suppliers report that they have fulfilled the sales budget for 2019 already in Q2. The bottle necks in the supply chain of installation services are even more critical, causing delays, quality issues and cost overruns. There is an urgent need to attract more suppliers to the market.

Accessing and increasing capacity in new markets is both challenging and costly. Supplying products and services to the district heating markets demands local presence. The fastest and least risky way of achieving this is to identify and establish cooperation with existing companies having already the local infrastructure and networks required to become considered a player. The question is how to find these partners.

The overall objective of the commercial seminar is to facilitate access to the Dutch market for district energy, thereby developing the capacity in the supply chain. This includes:

  • Offer an overview of NL market opportunities for district heating
  • Highlight a series of investment concrete projects currently underway
  • Meet professionals and key players in the NL market for district energy
  • Share experiences on solutions and best practice

We look forward to meeting you in Rotterdam on November 7th.
