A heating revolution with solar energy

Welcome to one of the Celsius webinars!

Solar thermal energy is becoming increasingly efficient and affordable. This zero-emission renewable resource playing a vital role in the energy transition in Europe.

On April 24, 2019 the following experts got together:

– Per Alex Sørensen, Construction Engineer at PlanEnergi
– Torsten Lütten, Director of Sales and Business Development at Savo Solar
– Riccardo Battisti, Senior Project Manager at Ambiente Italia
– Tobias Walla, Programme Manager at The Swedish Energy Agency

They discussed how solar heating is revolutionizing the energy sector, the challenges it faces and the possibility it presents for diverse and integrated energy systems.

Heat-pumping the future of district energy

Welcome to one of the CELSIUS webinars!

Heat pumps are becoming an increasingly popular and efficient solution to raise the share of residual heat sources in district energy systems. In an attempt to help Celsius members better understand this developing technology, this Celsius Talk brought together experts from the International Energy Agency’s (IEA) Heat Pumping Technologies programme Annex 47 to explore the main drivers and barriers related to the deployment of heat pumps in district energy systems.

Policy recommendations for carbon neutral energy systems and markets

Welcome to one of the Celsius webinars!

Without the right policies in place to support the deployment of energy efficient systems, the innovative solutions that cities develop may only have a limited and/or slow impact. Furthermore, depending on the climate goals set at the local, national and international levels, the policies and regulations needed will vary. What is certain is that a decisive legal framework needs to be put in place by the relevant authorities when developing their strategic energy plans.

Addressing policy recommendations that support the transition to carbon neutral local energy systems and markets, representatives from the Fossil-free Energy Districts project (FED), Heat Roadmap Europe and Energy Cities gathered together to discuss this important subject during the Celsius Talk: “Policy recommendations for carbon neutral energy systems and markets”.

About the experts:

FED
Having developed a unique local marketplace for electricity, district heating and cooling, FED strives to decrease the use of energy and the dependence on fossil fuel in the built environment. This innovative effort, lead by the City of Gothenburg, has developed 6 regulatory and policy recommendations to help regulatory bodies and policy makers make the necessary adjustments to enable the realisation of local integrated energy systems.

Heat Roadmap Europe
The goal of Heat Roadmap Europe 4 (HRE4) is to develop low-carbon heating and cooling strategies, called Heat Roadmaps, by quantifying and implementing changes at the national level for 14 EU Member States, which together account for approximately 85-90% of total heating and cooling in Europe.

Energy Cities
Energy Cities is the European Association of local authorities in energy transition, and their main objectives include:

  • To strengthen cities’ role and skills in the field of sustainable energy.
  • To represent cities’ interests and influence the policies and proposals made by European Union institutions in the fields of energy, environmental protection and urban policy.
  • To develop and promote cities’ initiatives through exchange of experiences, the transfer of know-how and the implementation of joint projects.

FED – Local Energy Markets

Welcome to one of the CELSIUS webinars!

At the Celsius Talk in May 2018, we looked into the Fossil-free Energy Districts project, FED. It is an innovative effort by the City of Gothenburg to decrease the use of energy and the dependence on fossil fuel in a built environment, co-funded European Regional and Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative. A unique local marketplace for electricity, district heating and cooling is being developed together with eight strong partners.

FED – Local Energy Markets
The Fossil-free Energy Districts project, FED, is an innovative effort by the City of Gothenburg to decrease the use of energy and the dependence on fossil fuel in a built environment. A unique local marketplace for electricity, district heating and cooling is being developed together with eight strong partners. During 2017−2019 the FED testbed will be situated on Chalmers Campus Johanneberg in Gothenburg.

The City of Gothenburg, Johanneberg Sciene Park, Göteborg Energi, Business Region Göteborg, Ericsson, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, Akademiska Hus, Chalmersfastigheter and Chalmers University of Technology are all contributing with their expertise and knowledge to make FED attractive for other European cities as well.

FED is co-financed by the European Regional and Development Fund through the Urban Innovative Actions Initiative, an initiative of the European Commission for cities to test new solutions for urban challenges.
