The LIFE22-CET-SET_HEAT project focuses on the shift towards cleaner, more sustainable district heating systems in Eastern Europe.
Its primary goal is integrating renewable energy sources and waste heat into existing high-temperature district heating networks. Implemented by a consortium of 12 partners, the project spans five countries: Poland, Croatia, Romania, Denmark, and Lithuania.
During the project, DBDH will be organizing study tours of the project partners to Denmark, showcasing streamlined district heating systems.
LIFE22-CET-SET_HEAT foresees an active involvement of district heating companies and key stakeholders in collaborative planning that will result in tangible, replicable model investment projects. These efforts involve technical and non-technical solutions, pre-feasibility studies, and strategic development plans for district heating companies.
The ultimate objective of LIFE22-CET-SET_HEAT is to develop strategic investment programs for district heating companies in Croatia, Lithuania, Poland, and Romania. Concurrently, the project aims to integrate low-grade renewable energy and waste heat into high-temperature heating networks, fostering a cleaner, more efficient energy landscape.
