"Integration of renewable energy technologies in district heating and cooling solutions for sustainable living" Workshop

Day 2 | Wednesday 28th October | 09.00 - 12.00

There is a large potential to integrate substantial shares of renewable energy sources in district heating and/or cooling systems, reducing dependency of DHC on fossil fuels and ultimately leading to a more efficient and sustainable energy system.

A number of EU funded projects are currently working on this topic. The objective of the workshop was to share WEDISTRICT project concept with other sister projects and interested stakeholders in order to exchange new ideas, lessons learnt from implementation, proposals about the successful integration of renewable technologies in DHC.
