How to reduce the use of fossil fuels and limit CO2 emissions while reducing energy poverty in the area? The objective of the city of Maubeuge is clear: to open to a large number of public and private users of the municipality the opportunity to heat in a sustainable way without reducing their purchasing power. Our challenge: to provide our client with a solution that is as sustainable as it is efficient!
We based our project on a simple idea: to recover the waste heat from the existing waste-to-energy center and use it to supply a district heating and hot water network. In addition to the interconnection with the waste-to-energy plant, the project includes the construction of a 20 MW gas-fired boiler room and a distribution network of almost 13 kilometers, crossing the city from east to west. The boiler room produces 48.8 GWh per year and meets the needs of approximately 5,000 homes. With a reduced VAT rate, the energy produced from heat recovery is among the most competitive. An economical and virtuous solution, which allows the city of Maubeuge to take a big step towards the energy transition of its territory!
- The network helps fight fuel poverty, with an average reduction of 15% in subscribers' energy bills.
- Thanks to its connection to the energy performance control center (Desc), this network offers smart and sustainable energy management that brings Maubeuge into the smart city concept.
