Sustainable Places 2023

A clustering workshop on DHC is organised for the 11th edition of Sustainable Places, hosted in Madrid, Spain as hybrid event.

Conference Scope

Sustainable Places is a renowned venue for showcasing results coming out of the EU Horizon 2020 and EU Horizon Europe Framework Programme via the participation of cutting-edge research and innovation projects. It involves designing, building and retrofitting the places we live and work in a more sustainable way. Sustainability targets and climate change objectives cannot be met without addressing buildings and the built environment at the building, district and urban scale to include our transport and energy infrastructures.


District Heating & Cooling in the future energy system

At Sustainable Places a clustering workshop will take place where the DHC+ Projects SENERGY NETS, ConnectHeat, RewardHEAT will be presented. The workshop is focussing on district heating & cooling (DHC) and sector coupling with smart grids and will gather in the same session several DHC-related EU-funded projects to exchange views and build synergies.
