Veolia: we want to be the leader in sustainable CHP
Veolia supplies heat and hot water to 560,000 households, 1,800 facilities in the tertiary sector and 300 industrial plants in the Czech Republic. Every year, the Group invests around one billion crowns in upgrading its energy facilities and distribution systems and progressively reduces the emissions of dust and other pollutants.
Veolia Energie ČR, a.s. is part of Veolia Group, which is one of the major providers of water, energy, and waste management services.
Veolia started its energy operations in the Czech market in the early 1990s, and it now supplies its primary energy commodities – heat and hot water – to 560,000 households, and along with electricity and other commodities such as cooling, gas, compressed air, and nitrogen, it supplies them to more than 300 industrial plants and 1,800 facilities in the tertiary sector. Since 1996, Veolia has been producing and distributing drinking water and draining and treating wastewater for its customers, as well as providing know-how in water infrastructure management. Veolia is also an expert in waste disposal and provides reliable and cost-effective reuse of by-products from the water and energy sectors.
Sustainable use of water and energy is a very important issue for Veolia; the Group is very particular about an environmentally friendly approach, promotes the circular economy, takes part in combating climate change, and actively contributes towards protecting and restoring biological diversity. It also offers the latest innovative environmental technologies and smart solutions for residential buildings, industrial plants and commercial facilities, geared towards optimising energy consumption and using alternative sources on a larger scale, saving costs as a result.
Hydrogen technologies seem to be a promising avenue where Veolia sees a huge potential. Its future focus in this field is primarily the production and distribution of green hydrogen. Such hydrogen, produced exclusively from renewable sources close to our CHP systems, will be supplied to our local partners for consumption. We see providers of passenger, public and cargo transport services as our potential partners. Other prospective customers include industrial companies burdened by CO2 production.
Veolia sees its own effort as a piece in the puzzle that is the global development of the hydrogen industry and the related infrastructure. In this effort, it is necessary to align the opportunities in the various areas of our Company’s activity such as research and development, European, national and regional organisations, and a wide range of industrial sectors.
Veolia wants to be there when this transition takes place.
