About the CELSIUS Project
Based on the premise that cities and districts are in a position to take the lead in the energy transition, the European Project CELSIUS, funded under the 7th Framework Programme assembled a network of 72 cities and 68 City Supporters between 2014 and 2017. They joined the project partners (20 organisations from public, private and research institutions) to help cities plan, develop and optimise their district heating and cooling networks.
Building on the reputation and the momentum it had created, at the end of the project the City of Gothenburg through Johanneberg Science Park, RISE, IMCG and Euroheat & Power joined forces to create the Celsius Initiative.
