On 21 November, at the Committee of the Regions in Brussels, we will celebrate the CELSIUS Summit and the official launching of CELSIUS 2.0!
Organised by Euroheat & Power with the support of the other CELSIUS 2.0 partners, this dynamic conference will bring together influential actors from across Europe to connect and exchange ideas on how intelligent heating and cooling solutions will allow smart cities to satisfy the present and future energy needs of its citizens and businesses in a sustainable way.
The program of the CELSIUS Summit will offer knowledge transfer by leading experts in the field and provide participants with the opportunity to partake in one-on-one matchmaking sessions as well as intimate round table discussions on specific subjects, key to improving heating and cooling systems in Europe.
We look forward to receiving political representatives from our member cities on stage and hearing their city’s vision, strategy and commitment to the development and optimisation of smart heating and cooling solutions for a sustainable future. Our goal is to present a manifesto on behalf of all the CELSIUS Cities to Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič, paving the way for a competitive, liveable and resource-efficient Europe.
CELSIUS is a district heating and cooling (DHC) knowledge transfer and demonstration project. DHC is an excellent way to utilize secondary energy sources and become more energy efficient. EU cities with an expressed interest in planning, building and optimising smart DHC solutions can become CELSIUS Member Cities and benefit from the project offering. In the offering, there is a CELSIUS Wiki – an online DHC knowledge resource – with articles from the CELSIUS Partner Organisations, CELSIUS City Supporters and CELSIUS Member Cities. There are workshops, webinars and study visits to the CELSIUS demonstrators. CELSIUS promotes legislation with focus on energy efficiency at an energy system level. And there is a growing CELSIUS Network that decreases the distance between stakeholders interested in DHC development.
