KeepWarm Learning Centre launched
On the occasion of the CELSIUS Summit, we are happy to announce that our Learning Centre on improving the performance of district heating systems is now on-line! It is open and free for all stakeholders involved in the planning, provision or use of district heating, who would like to deepen their knowledge or find hands-on information to help support their decision-making process on thermal systems.
Why a Learning Centre?
Heating has been neglected in the EU's climate and energy policy for many years. Meanwhile, the demand for guidance, knowledge transfer and exchange of experience has grown. To respond to this request, KeepWarm project partners developed new training material and decided further to systematically collect materials from various, high quality sources and make them accessible in one place: the KeepWarm Learning Centre.
Who is it for?
The Learning Centre was primarily designed to support district heating operators, when deciding to improve their existing district heating system. However, if you are a policy-maker, engineer, urban planner, operator of a district heating plant or grid, a real-estate developer, a consumer organisation, or just a concerned citizen, the KeepWarm Learning Centre is the place to find the information you are looking for.
What can be found there?
The KeepWarm Learning Centre is pooling hot resources and cool solutions on district heating in Europe and beyond. This includes a large selection of training materials developed or collected by project partners in 7 languages, but also reports, materials with datasheets, analysis, policy recommendations, as well as business models, funding sources, project development and implementation steps characteristic for each of the technological solutions.
The resources of the KeepWarm Learning Centre are divided into several chapters, to make browsing easier. They are: Data inputs, Business models and funding, Financing implementation, Technical solutions and cases, Sustainable energy sources, Policy recommendations, Thermal planning tools and material in other languages than English.
If you have complementary material and suggestions for the KeepWarm Learning Centre do not hesitate to contact us. Feel encouraged to spread the word about this powerful resource and help to improve district heating systems all over Europe!
