Based on the premise that cities and districts are in a position to take the lead in the energy transition, the European Project CELSIUS, funded under the 7th Framework Programme assembled a network of 72 cities and 68 City Supporters between 2014 and 2017. They joined the project partners (20 organisations from public, private and research institutions) to help cities plan, develop and optimise their district heating and cooling networks.
It is a demand driven collaboration hub for efficient, integrated heating and cooling solutions supporting cities in their energy transition to carbon-neutral systems. Focusing on cities’ needs, through the forerunner groups, it connects its members to exchange on climate and environmental policies, foster innovation, leading to solutions that accelerate sustainable development in Europe and across the world.
The initiative also provides continuous knowledge sharing through a monthly newsletter, webinars, participatory workshops and the Celsius Toolbox. The later gathers and shares technical, economic, social and policy expertise.
These are the Celsius Initiative partners:
City of Gothenburg
Johanneberg Science Park
