Bringing European cities to the fore of decarbonising urban heating and cooling
Cities have a key role in tackling climate change but lack the resources and capacity to deliver. The EU-funded DecarbCityPipes 2050 project aims to equip cities with skills and knowledge to decarbonise heating and cooling in buildings by 2050, with a special focus on phasing out natural gas in heating. The project brings together seven European cities (Bilbao, Bratislava, Dublin, Munich, Rotterdam, Vienna and Winterthur) to learn from each other and coordinate their work in tackling the local challenges they might encounter. The cities will build up their skills in the use of data, planning tools and instruments as well as process and transition management. They will develop transition roadmaps for the heating and cooling sector in cooperation with their local utilities, reinforcing trust and commitment for its implementation. The project will motivate and enable more cities across Europe to follow their example.
