KeepWarm series of online seminars "Keeping our cities sustainably warm"

Registration open! Online seminar N°2 "Keeping our cities renewably warm" on 8 October 2020!

Keep your calendar free on Thursday 8 October 2020 from 14h - 15h30 CEST to join our second international e-seminar.

The session will emphasise the great potential of exploiting solar thermal and biomass resources (as well as other RE like heat pumps) by forward-thinking DHSs. It will particularly focus on relevant examples from four KeepWarm target countries: Croatia, Latvia, Slovenia and Serbia. The common thread in all four cases will be about DHS RE-retrofits from their distinct national perspectives, and with insights applicable to other countries and from other RE sources.

Additionally, KeepWarm will formally launch its new RE-DH guidance booklet to inspire strategic decision-making and further replication/investments for integrating/switching to RE-DH.

Registration is now open!

"Keeping our cities sustainably warm" final online seminar

The KeepWarm project will be both a celebration of three years of intensive work and an opportunity to share and exchange ideas on accelerating cost-effective investments in the modernisation of District Heating Systems (DHS). The eleven project partners from a variety of relevant sectors from seven countries across Central and Eastern Europe will share their achievements in modernising DHS around the whole region. Other associated projects will feed in with their take on KeepWarm and on best practices for environmental-friendlier heating and cooling.

Virtual study visits

Virtual regional study visit: Croatia, Slovenia & Serbia - 10 September 2020

With all physical meetings now taking place in virtual form, KeepWarm project partners REGEA, VINČA and KSSENA organised a successful online study visit between twinned District Heating Systems (DHS) in 3 KeepWarm countries on 10 September.

The 30 participants, including project partners and representatives of all heating plants in these three countries, exchanged on the current situation in district heating systems in  Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia. This included a focus on current legislation and future obligations such as energy efficiency, integration of renewable energy sources, transparency and improving general communication between district heating and local / regional / national authorities, with the aim to identify the main problems in the sector and their possible solutions.The second (main) part of the meeting belonged to the "twinning" activities through the KeepWarm project with the aim of fostering the cooperation between previously selected twin partners.
