To ensure that cities’ needs and leadership role are taken on board in this pivotal moment for the future of heating and cooling, Celsius Cities, #DHCities, Energy Cities and FEDARENE have come together to endorse the Cities Manifesto for Fossil-Free Heating and Cooling.
Climate & energy planning articles
The combination of district heating and heat pumps are foreseen to have a key role in the future district heating systems. This article looks at the integration of large-scale heat pumps in district heating, which can help balancing the power grid when the production of electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources fluctuates.
This article shows differences in energy performance between tenant-owned and rental apartment buildings, and also investigates differences between private and municipal rental companies.
