Heating Poland: potential sources, financing options and support programmes – From a local to an international perspective

Workshop on district heating systems under the framework of the EU-funded Heat Roadmap Europe project, to be held on January 25 in Warsaw, Poland.

The supply of heat through district energy systems is a common technology used by local municipalities across Europe, but far from all are efficient and many of the local actors’ struggle with the challenge of transforming these systems into low-carbon systems.

How could old municipality district heating systems be upgraded, and what are the benefits compared with other heating sources traditionally used in Poland? What are the available financing options and existing support programmes? The workshop will focus on answering these questions and present best-practice local and international examples as well as business models. This workshop is organised in the framework of the EU-funded Heat Roadmap Europe project.

Heat Roadmap Europe 4 is a Horizon 2020 funded research project, with a consortium of 23 partners and will be running from 2016 until 2019. Its main goal is to study the heating and cooling sector in Europe by quantifying the effects of increased energy efficiency on both the demand and supply side, in terms of energy consumption, environmental impacts and costs. The overall aim in HRE4 is to develop low-carbon heating and cooling strategies, which are called Heat Roadmaps, and subsequently to quantify the impact of implementing them at a national level for 14 EU Member States.
