The transition from gas involves high costs, while the historical attraction to low-cost fossil fuels creates barriers. Aquathermal energy becomes a promising avenue for sustainable heating and cooling that will be explored by the international consortium of partners within the Waterwarmth project.
Initiated by Interreg North Sea and co-funded by the European Union, the WaterWarmth project is dedicated to developing impactful pilot programs and showcasing exemplary cases highlighting aqua thermal energy’s vast potential.
It addresses the challenges of integrating aqua thermal energy, environmental impact, legal frameworks, funding, and risk-sharing by energy communities.
Carried out by a consortium of 21 partner organizations spanning the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Denmark, and Sweden, this project aims to support energy communities in the North Sea Region by effectively incorporating aqua-thermal energy into their operational frameworks.
