COVID-19 update
In relation to the COVID-19 outbreak, at this stage it is not envisaged to move the conference dates. However the organisation committee is closely monitoring the situation and will reassess the situation by the end of April.

Integration of renewables in DHC for Sustainable Living


There is a large potential to integrate substantial shares of renewable energy sources in district heating and/or cooling systems, reducing dependency of DHC on fossil fuels and ultimately leading to a more efficient and sustainable energy system.
A number of EU funded projects are currently working on this topic. The objective of the workshop is to share WEDISTRICT project concept with other sister projects and interested stakeholders in order to exchange new ideas, lessons learnt from implementation, proposals about the successful integration of renewable technologies in DHC.
Participating projects : [ WEDISTRICT ]( ), [ REWARDHeat ]( ), [ RELaTED ]( ), [ INDIGO ]( ).
Chair of the workshop: [ Maria Victoria Cambronero Vazquez ]( mailto:[log in to unmask] ) (ACCIONA)
