European Commision publishes Tilia study on efficient district heating and cooling systems

By January 19, 2017 No Comments

We believe efficient district heating and cooling systems can provide an evolutive backbone to balance energy transitions. Tilia has prepared the new report of the JRC on Efficient district heating and cooling in the EU, providing an in-depth analysis of DHC systems in Barcelona, Brescia, Copenhagen, Gram, Hafencity (Hamburg), Paris-Saclay, Stockholm and Tartu.

Abstract of the study:
“Based on a holistic case studies analysis of 8 efficient district heating and cooling systems in different European Member States (Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden), the study identifies the key factors enabling to develop high quality, efficient and low-carbon DHC systems, discusses how these key success factors can be replicated in the EU and provides a better view on the role and features of these systems, which can provide an evolutive backbone to balanced energy transitions. Finally, it suggests some potential policy guidelines to support their deployment.”
