In addition to a number of official side events in connection with the ministerial meetings, diverse energy related activities took place in the Greater Copenhagen region during what is known as the “Nordic Clean Energy Week, May 21 – 24, 2018”. The Nordic Clean Energy Week was co-hosted by Sweden and Denmark.
During the week, politicians, researchers, business and industry gathered to discuss future energy solutions. In a session on sustainable heating and cooling, results from the EU project CELSIUS were presented.
At the event Kristina Lygnerud, the coordinator of ReUseHeat, was invited to share information on the Bucharest demonstrator, waste heat recovery from metro system – the demonstrator was discussed in the light of the similar demonstration performed in the city of London.
