CELSIUS Summit 2017 – The Power of Networks
As a transition between the CELSIUS Seventh Framework Programme project and the continuation – CELSIUS 2.0, CELSIUS hosted a conference to showcase the latest research and technological developments; address key challenges faced by cities in the planning, development and optimisation of their district energy systems; and to bring the CELSIUS Network together to strengthen it and continue the development of smart district heating and cooling solutions. The conference focussed on the Power of Networks – both in terms of pipes and people.
A warm thank you to all participants, all organisers and, especially, the event partners: the Swedish Energy Agency with Heat Networks Sustainability by Sweden, SWEP, ENGIE with UN Environment and District Energy in Cities Initiative, SKANSKA, Heat Roadmap Europe, Elpanneteknik, and SavoSolar.
One of the networking sessions during the conference was the round-table discussions. They covered several different topics and the moderators of the discussions have summarised what was covered in a few comments in this document.
CELSIUS Awards 2017
The CELSIUS network has grown and includes an additional 67 CELSIUS Member Cities! This means that the amount of demonstrators in the CELSIUS network has increased too. During CELSIUS Summit, three CELSIUS Member Cities were each presented with a CELSIUS Award because they had produced outstanding demonstrators, in the three award categories: Getting started, Innovative District Cooling, and Inspiring solution.
