The ReUseHeat project and Celsius Initiative organise together their final conference 'Decarbonising Cities with Unconventional Sources' on 7 September 2022 at L42 Business Center, in Brussels.

Key findings on the waste heat potential and urban waste heat recovery and along with all the experience from the four demonstration cases will be presented by ReUseHeat.

Celsius Initiative will share its main outcomes on the importance of collaboration and knowledge sharing between cities, the similarities and differences between cities in H&C transition as well as key learnings from the Celsius format (e.g. Forerunner Groups and Celsius Talks).

The session on technical solutions for waste heat recovery is co-organised and co-hosted by the LIFE4HeatRecovery project, which demonstrates the effectiveness of smart district heating and cooling networks with distributed low-temperature waste heat sources.
