We all like it to be comfortably warm, not too warm though, so thermal comfort is important! To realise the energy transition in an efficient manner it's crucial that the right energy sources are used for the right applications and that the right Joule is used for the right Joule.   This Expert Talk zooms in on what possible energy sources can be used to realise sustainable heating and cooling in the built environment and for industry. Written by prof. Lieve Helsen and Johan Van Bael.

Cities around Europe are piloting and implementing solutions to become more circular. Plastic, construction and bio-waste are three of the waste streams cities are seeking to reduce or reuse due to their environmental impact and socio-economic value. Which levers do cities have to effectively close these materials loops?
