The project’s main objective is to promote structural cooperation between public authorities and key stakeholders at transnational level and to build-up skills and know-how for a systematic, holistic and efficient planning of small district heating systems within five target regions (ITA, GER, HR, SI, PL), based on renewable heat sources. It includes following parts:
- Improved energy planning skills of local and regional authorities
- Coherent regional energy strategies for renewable district heating
- Implementation of local actions for renewable district heating
This outcome will also lead to a reduction of fossil fuels and CO2 emissions, positive impacts on local air quality and socio-economic benefits for local communities through the growths of technical expertise and the start-up of investments and innovative financial tools.
