Words from the Coordinator
As you may be aware the Smart Cities EU-funded FP7 CELSIUS project has come to an end and we would like to thank you all for your contributions and support.
The three main pillars of the project have been; innovative demonstration, replication via a city-network and a digital toolbox and policy-influence. Thanks to a good and enthusiastic partnership, networks and good timing for District Energy the outcome has become a success and the opportunities for a continuation are very promising. District Energy has an important role to play in a smart energy system and CELSIUS 2.0 will continue to be a knowledge hub for cities, businesses, energy-companies and academia.
CELSIUS 2.0 will be led by a strong triple-helix partnership; City of Gothenburg with Johanneberg Science Park, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden and Euroheat&Power. The aim is to continue and improve the support to the city-network and further develop the digital toolbox (wiki) for replication of smart district energy solutions. Keep an eye on our up-coming events, among other; regular webinars (the first in March), the newsletter, a brokerage event and a conference in Brussels in November. The website will give you the latest, please, do not hesitate to contact us for collaboration or becoming a CELSIUS Member City or a CELSIUS City Supporter and get access to the wiki and the webinars.
