TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS AND CASES
KeepWarm results, resources and offered services
The purpose of this Service Pitch Book is to relay the availability of replicable, bankable examples of DH-retrofits for both energy efficiency (EE) and integrating more sustainable energy sources (i.e. RES and/or excess heat, ExH), as well as providing information about national contexts, especially useful to audiences outside a particular country. It highlights the pilot DHSs which have been actively participating in KeepWarm’s activities, giving them visibility as well as stimulating networking opportunities to reach out to them directly for improving DH even further.
KeepWarm Report on Replication Models
This report points out eleven models developed within the project which can be used as good practice examples and showcase for successful modernisation of various DHSs. These models represent a continuous work and highlight main parts of the KeepWarm tailor - made approach.
Report on support provided to DHS: a conclusion of the support provided to each DHS operator/owner by each project partner involved in their respective countries such as additional technical support, support in financial modelling and applying to different subsidy/grant schemes, support in negotiation process with either potential new customers or local authorities in terms of obtaining different permits or creating contracts.
The KeepWarm consortium organized local working groups for selected District Heating Systems in each country with the aim of providing tailor-made assistance to remove barriers, attract funds and finalize planned investments. The goal of the local working groups was to include all relevant stakeholders to provide input for business plan development and feedback on future retrofitting plans as well as on barrier removal for DHS. Find here the "Report on local working groups" for Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Latvia, Serbia, Slovenia and Ukraine.
