Efficient homes save on energy consumption

Over the past 30 years, average Dutch household gas consumption has nearly been cut in half. This achievement is almost entirely due to high-performance boilers and better housing insulation. More energy can be saved by insulating homes and offices and by using excess heat from industry that would otherwise have been released from cooling towers, or discharged to surface water.
