Welcome to the Celsius Initiative!
We are a demand driven collaboration hub for efficient, integrated heating and cooling solutions supporting cities in their energy transition to carbon-neutral systems. Focusing on cities’ needs, through the forerunner groups, it connects its members to exchange on climate and environmental policies, foster innovation, leading to solutions that accelerate sustainable development in Europe and across the world.
The initiative also provides continuous knowledge sharing through a monthly newsletter, webinars, participatory workshops and the Celsius Toolbox. The later gathers and shares technical, economic, social and policy expertise.
We are pleased to share that we are one of the hosts the EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) 2021 Networking Village. From 25 - 29...
A new guidebook on how to implement Low-Temperature District Heating was recently published at the Fraunhofer book publisher. The book was...
The COOL DH-project has now run for more than three years and the results are starting to show!
Latest from the Toolbox
In a new publication over 60 district heating and cooling projects are being highlighted and carefully presented.
Get inspired and collect knowledge from innovative new projects financed by the European Commission.
The digitalisation process in society means new business models for heat pumps as well as the need for further development of integrated solutions. European Heat Pump Association, EHPA has provided an overview on the subject.
Energy providers and property owners can both benefit from an innovative cooling concept based on the utilization of the flexibility in district heating systems, and in particular by harvesting excess heat from a cooling process. A Berlin demo case is presented from the Flexi-Sync project.

Guide to European district heating projects
Get inspired and collect knowledge from innovative new projects financed by the European Commission. More then 60 innovation projects are being highlighted and presented with a focus on the replication potential in cities in this overview.
Give cities a voice in Brussels
No energy transition without sustainable cities; no sustainable cities without sustainable heating and cooling. As the 2016 European Commission’s Heating & Cooling Strategy made clear, district energy systems will have to play a significant role to make Europe’s broader climate and energy ambitions a reality. And cities will be in the driver’s seat to make a successful energy transition happen.
