How to foster 4th generation district heating and cooling?


Learn about 4th generation district heating and cooling: regulation, example and procurement!

4th generation district heating and cooling (4DHC) represents a smart city development opportunity: it provides a low-temperature distribution system that minimises heat loss, integrates energy storage and renewable energy sources, and supplies multiple low energy buildings. Its development is however complex and municipalities, developers can face several challenges. The HeatNet NWE project provides guidance for developers of such intelligent systems, based on the experience of 6 pilot cities.

After an update of the EU regulatory framework, this webinar will present the experience of Dublin City as well as the procurement guide. It is organised in the framework of the HeatNet NWE project (co-funded by the Interreg North-West-Europe programme) in cooperation with the European Covenant of Mayors.
