Resource and Energy Collaborations – a Handbook

Waste heat is a by-product of many industrial processes. Increasingly, manufacturers are trying to find ways to use that heat internally to increase their energy efficiency. But sometimes they just don't need the extra heat. The most obvious solution – from an environmental point of view – is to try and find another business who does. But how does one establish such a collaboration? And what can help make it achievable? Research centre HighEFF wrote a handbook that helps businesses answer these and other questions.
