Other H2020 projects with which synergies could be established

The aim of UpgradeDH is to improve the performance of inefficient DHSs in Europe by supporting selected demo cases for upgrading and later replicating the experiences to similar cases. It received funding under the same call for proposals as KeepWarm and will run over a similar time period.

The Heat Roadmap Europe 4 project maps and models the heating and energy systems of the 14 largest users of heat in the EU, to develop new policies at local to EU levels to ensure the uptake of efficient, sustainable and affordable heating and cooling solutions.

The vision of CELSIUS 2.0 is to accelerate the transition to smart and sustainable heating and cooling solutions. Among other things, this includes recuperating the available waste heat in cities and letting heating and cooling be a smart part of your energy system as a whole.

THERMOS (Thermal Energy Resource Modelling and Optimisation System) provides advanced energy system data and models in a user-friendly, open-source software to make heat network planning faster, more efficient and cost-effective.

The project aims to showcase how DHSs can be more resource- and energy-efficient, particularly with technologies to use low-grade (i.e. low temperature) excess heat sources in energy-efficient buildings.

The ReUseHeat project showcases replicable models enabling the recovery and reuse of excess heat available at the urban level. It aims to increase the energy efficiency of DH and cooling systems in cities across Europe.

PLANHEAT develops and validates an easy-to-use tool to support local authorities in selecting, simulating and comparing alternative scenarios for heating and cooling.
