Welcome to the Celsius Toolbox
a District Energy Knowledge Resource
The Celsius Toolbox aims to be a source of knowledge and inspiration for cities interested in developing district energy (district heating and cooling) solutions. It addresses cities which are just beginning to implement small-scale district heating and cooling networks as well as cities with large established systems endeavoring for even smarter and more efficient solutions.
The Toolbox started as a wiki created within the EU project CELSIUS, sharing experiences and research from the project partners and it is continuously being developed in cooperation with the growing Celsius Network.
The Celsius Toolbox consists of four main elements, read more below.
Municipal city planners, developers, politicians, decision makers – this is for you.

Latest from the Toolbox
Energy providers and property owners can both benefit from an innovative cooling concept based on the utilization of the flexibility in district heating systems, and in particular by harvesting excess heat from a cooling process. A Berlin demo case is presented from the Flexi-Sync project.
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.
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.
