The international network for district energy, promoting sustainable heating and cooling in Europe and beyond.
CELSIUS Smart Cities
Making heating and cooling for European consumers efficient, economically resilient, clean and climate-friendly
The aim of REPLACE is to motivate and support people in nine different countries to replace their old heating systems with more environmentally friendly alternatives. Simple renovation measures that reduce overall energy consumption are also part of the programme.
Smart and local reneWable Energy DISTRICT heating and cooling solutions for sustainable living
The target of the WEDISTRICT is to demonstrate 100% fossil free heating and cooling solutions by optimally integrating multiple sources of renewable energies and excess heat in new and existing DHC systems. For this, integration of 9 upgraded renewable solutions for DHC generation into 4 real DHC sites in Spain, Romania, Poland and Sweden will be performed within the project. All of this, in a holistic context, smartly managed by ICT-integration, sustainable business models and engagement of citizens.
D2GRIDS is an acronym for ‘demand driven grids’. This Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) project, coordinated by Mijnwater Ltd., aims to upscale 5th generation District Heating and Cooling (5G DHC) grids across Europe. Five pilot sites in Paris-Saclay (FR), Bochum (GE), Brunssum (NL), Glasgow and Nottingham (UK) will develop 5G DHC grids. The 20 million EUR project is supported by Interreg funds
RELaTED will provide an innovative concept of decentralised Ultra-Low Temperature (ULT) network solution that can pave the way for expanding and modernising existing district heating networks as well as introducing and establishing district heating in emerging EU markets.
Planning and operational tools for optimising energy flows and synergies between energy networks
Smart Integration of Energy Storages in Local Multi Energy Systems for maximising the Share of Renewables in Europe’s Energy Mix
SmILES zooms in simulation and optimisation of smart storage in local energy systems for increasing the understanding and transparency of innovative multi-energy projects. Setting up a shared data and information platform and effective dissemination of related results will contribute to competence building. Supplementing the research activities, a long-lasting framework across EERA JP borders is set up by the consortium for extending storage integration technologies by linking other EERA members, stakeholders, energy supplier and industry.
Enabling the Energy Union through understanding the drivers of individual and collective energy choices in Europe
Enhanced energy and resource Efficiency and Performance in process industry Operations via onsite and cross-sectorial Symbiosis
Thermal Energy Resource Modelling and Optimisation System
THERMOS is an EU Horizon 2020 funded research project which will provide advanced energy system data and models in a user-friendly open-source application to make heat network planning faster, more efficient, and more cost effective.
The main objective of INDIGO is the development of a more efficient, intelligent, and cheaper generation of District Cooling (DC) systems by improving system planning, control and management involving all components and levels of a DC system.
Energy and resource management systems for improved efficiency in the process industries
The MAESTRI project aims to advance the sustainability of European manufacturing and process industries. This is done by providing a management system in the form of a flexible and scalable platform, and to guide and simplify the implementation of an innovative approach, the Total Efficiency Framework.
Intelligent Hybrid Thermo-Chemical District Networks
The H-DisNet project contributes to next-generation of district energy networks developing the innovative thermo-chemical (TC) network technology. The technology exploits the high chemical potential of absorption processes for loss-free transport and storage of energy potential.
Energy Efficient Optimised District Heating and Cooling
The CoolHeating project promotes the implementation of “small modular renewable heating and cooling grids” for communities in South-Eastern Europe.
