Live in a cold climate, a common cityscape has tall buildings shooting steam up into the sky during extreme cold to vent pressure in their heating systems. Solutions? Build a green roof, seal the structure in for winter, and heat it with the excess steam during cold snaps. You could also process and feed the energy back into the building. Maybe have it turn a small generator that charges the boss’s laptop.
If steam is shooting from something, mankind has ways to harness that energy and use it. If this is not currently being done, it can only be because it is cheaper not to bother. I assure you energy is always of some value, but sometimes not enough to be profitable in harnessing. They’ll take oil from the sand, but they won’t yet take it from algae, too expensive. Something like this building boiler steam, its an energy source we already have, but the people who own it are not really in the business of energy supply. They’re not going to waste research money on new technology unless they plan to sell it themselves. . .Fine, so then who do i blame the lennox man?
Ok sorry, today i am not here to offer you solutions, . . .maybe the green roof steam thing, that was alright. I haven’t got the time or money to figure everything out. All i know is there are homeless people who freeze to death and others who are alive because of ventilated energy (sleeping on grates), meanwhile the corporate towers downtown are venting heat into the sky like fireworks.
