What potential does wastewater energy have overall?

Energy from wastewater could cover up to 15% of the heat demand in the building sector in Germany alone. This would mean 4 to 12 million people could receive eco-friendly heat recovered from wastewater. The potential is especially high in urban areas.
As the market leader, we have already realized about 120 projects, most of which are in Germany. They vary in size, ranging from 20 kW to 2 MW. Wastewater network operators are also increasingly looking to exploit the potential of wastewater energy. Some provide online potential maps to make it easier for people interested in developing projects, while others develop and operate projects themselves.
