EHP & Celsius Talk: Local Leaders on the Front Lines



The 17 June 2020 from 14:30 until 16:45

Many European cities have inspiring stories to tell about how they have managed or how they plan their heat transition towards a 100% green, reliable system based on local sources and heat networks. During the webinar we will hear from four remarkable cities from all corners of Europe, from very advanced decarbonised systems going the extra mile, to retrofitting and decarbonising existing networks, to getting a new network started.

    Laura Uuttu-Deschryvere, Project Director of Helsinki Energy Challenge at the City of Helsinki
  • Modernizing & upgrading existing systems
