The KeepWarm project has trained over 500 district heating operators in Austria, Czech Republic, Latvia, Slovenia, Serbia, and Ukraine. KeepWarm maintains a learning centre that offers free material on business models and funding, thermal planning tools, policy recommendations and case studies of best practices in district heating. The UpgradeDH project has published a handbook that outlines opportunities for energy-efficient upgrading of district heating systems.
Heating and hot water account for 79% of EU households’ final energy use, therefore action to upgrade old and inefficient district heating systems will make a significant contribution to Europe’s climate and energy goals.
