The Swiss municipality of Urdorf commissioned an EBP team to help it develop an energy plan that would establish compliance with the cantonal energy law. We approached our assignment by first analyzing the existing heat-supply systems and identifying opportunities to make use of renewable energy and waste heat. Working with the municipality and the relevant energy-industry stakeholders, we developed a future-oriented energy-supply plan that would establish compliance with the cantonal law while also balancing the interests of the various stakeholders in Urdorf.
- Analysis of existing heat-supply systems and assessment of carbon footprint
