2050 Today: Reengineering Heat - POSTPONED

  COOL DH, the Swedish-Danish frontrunner collaborative project offers the opportunity to jump directly into the future of district heating. A future where heat sources are totally decarbonised and unconventional, buildings are energy efficient and fossil fuels are completely phased out. The event will be a great occasion to debate about this vision and how it could be replicated in the rest of Europe.   Please note that due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the workshop has been postponed until further notice.
