Smart district heating: 4th Generation District Heating
Director General Euroheat & Power
Paul Voss has been active in the EU energy policy debate for 12 years and has been the Managing Director of Euroheat & Power since late 2013. Prior to this, he was Head of Public Affairs at Danfoss District Energy, a global leader in the field of efficient technology for heating and cooling networks.
Together with his team of extremely talented and award winning colleagues at Euroheat, Paul spends his working days telling stories, drinking coffee and arguing (1) that there can be no real energy transition without a fundamental change in the way we heat our buildings and (2) that district heating and cooling, when it’s done properly, has a massive role to play in achieving this, particularly in cities.
Outside of work, Paul’s a keen long-distance runner, an enthusiastic drinker of irritatingly trendy micro-brewery beers and (he hopes) an adequate husband, Dad and dog owner. He’s originally from the UK but grew up mostly in Canada and settled in Belgium after stints in France, Guatemala and South Korea.
