ReUseHeat joined by Celsius Initiative organised their final public events in a joint conference on 7 September 2022 at L42 Business Center, in Brussels.
Key findings on the waste heat potential and urban waste heat recovery and along with all the experience from the demonstration sites were presented by ReUseHeat partners.
Celsius Initiative shared its main outcomes on the importance of collaboration and knowledge sharing between cities, the similarities and differences between cities in H&C transition as well as key learnings from the Celsius format (e.g. Forerunner Groups and Celsius Talks).
The Life4HeatRecovery project co-organised and co-hosted the session on ‘Engaging low-temperature waste heat suppliers into district heating’ where the project cases demonstrated the effectiveness of a new generation of smart district heating and cooling network with distributed low-temperature waste heat sources.
