The process leading to the realisation of a sustainable and smart heating and cooling project shows a great variance from city to city, district to district. Taking this into consideration, Celsius provides demand driven support actions for cities looking to decarbonise their heating & cooling systems while supplying affordable comfort to its citizens.
As a demand-driven collaboration hub we gather and share knowledge through our Toolbox, newsletter, webinars and various events. Moreover, we connect the members of our network to foster innovative solutions and influence European policy. Join us!

Positive Energy Districts and Neighbourhoods may serve as a crucial contribution to achieve climate and energy targets. This call focuses on exchange of experience between ambitions and initiatives already going on.
The European City Facility (EUCF) will launch its first call for proposals. All municipalities (local authorities) and their groupings from the EU-27 and UK are encouraged to apply to get support in developing an investment concept and accelerate the implementation of their energy and climate action plans. The investment concepts represent an initial step towards a fully-fledged business and financial plan.

Low temperature district heating can prove to be an important part in also keeping the globe’s temperature low. This webinar presents some of the opportunities and challenges cities may encounter in their endeavour towards a sustainable and efficient low temperature district heating systems.
Based on the premise that cities and districts are in a position to take the lead in the energy transitions, the Celsius Initiative in now creating forerunner groups where cities and experts can come together to facilitate the implementation of heating and cooling solutions.
Horizon Europe Missions is a new initiative from the EU Commission to increase funding effectiveness by pursuing clearly defined targets. The mission board for climate-neutral and smart cities has been tasked with identifying one or more specific missions for implementation under Horizon Europe.
Heating and cooling will play a decisive role in the long-term decarbonisation of Europe’s energy system: the sector is responsible for 51% of final energy use in Europe and about 27% of CO2 emissions.

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.
