Focus of the text

This text presents a brochure with an overview of recent European district heating and cooling projects, financed by the European Commission. These innovative projects have been collected and analysed by Euroheat & Power in the framework of the Celsius Initiative.

Get inspired and collect knowledge from recent district heating and cooling (DHC) projects all over Europe. In a new publication, over 60 innovation projects are being highlighted and presented with a focus on the replication potential in other cities.

After a thorough work Euroheat & Power colleagues have now collected more than 60 projects and support activities regarding DHC, financed by the European Commission from 2016 and onwards. The various projects are being presented here with their main district heating and cooling solutions and innovations.

In this overview you can search by replication potential of the project or by name, and of course just by what might interest you (free text search). The projects are also divided into different areas such as renewables, low temperature, waste heat, heat pumps, digitalisation, heat planning, support activities (standardisation and communication) and smart cities (networks such as Celsius).

The brochure ”Advancing District Heating & Cooling Solutions and Uptake in European Cities” focuses on the Horizon 2020 Programme for Research and Innovation (2016-2020), including projects funded under the LIFE programme and adds the latest Green Deal projects.
