Transformation of existing urban district heating and cooling systems from fossil to renewable energy sources

Project description

Heating and cooling in the age of renewable energy

The renewable transformation of heating and cooling is underway but requires innovative next-generation policies. Currently, renewables are estimated to serve just 10 % of the thermal energy demand. The implementation of district heating and cooling (DHC) systems based on renewable energy sources (RES) is a solution that is spreading, particularly among small communities in search of energy independence. The solution is based on the idea of using local heating and cooling sources that under normal circumstances would have been lost. The EU-funded RES-DHC project will develop the solutions and instruments needed to implement the EU Renewable Energy Directive II (2018/2001), which requires a yearly increase of RES in DHC by 1 %. The project will assist in the transformation of existing urban DHC systems in six countries: Germany, Austria, Italy, Poland, France and Switzerland.
