A technical perspective on Smart Energy Systems

A lecture-style explanation of the current energy system, and the role of sustainable heating in an energy transformation.

Denmark as an example for a sustainable transition

Eco Eye is a documentary-style series broadcast on RTÉ One. This episode looks at a post-fossil fuel future, and the ways in which European countries are aiming to achieve this. It includes a segment on the role of harnessing waste heat, and the role it can play in decoupling carbon emissions from growth.
