Celsius Summit 2020

Mission Possible: Facilitating the Heat Transition in South East Europe & Beyond

2020 is a year with many firsts: a world-wide pandemic that threatens our society, but also countries stepping up their climate ambitions and the European Union announcing the Climate Neutral Cities mission as well as many opportunities for cities with the Green Deal Policy Framework. The Celsius Initiative also has some firsts this year: co-creating the forerunner groups together with the Celsius Cities and the first virtual Summit – Celsius Summit 2020!

The Celsius Summit 2020 is co-organised with the North West Croatian Energy Agency (REGEA) and will put a clear emphasis on the region’s heat transition, its challenges and success stories and what role district heating and cooling networks will play.

  • December 9 the programme will focus on funding aspects, with a multitude of new funding programmes available for Celsius cities.
  • December 10 will put the spotlight on the policy framework and what else is needed to make a fast and ambitious heat transition happen
