The ReUseHeat report "Accessible Urban Waste Heat"
shows a significant heat recovery potential from unconventional excess heat sources. Approximately 1.2 EJ (or 340 TWh) per year are possible to recover from data centres, metro stations, service sector buildings, and waste water treatment plants. This corresponds to more than 10 percent of the EU's total energy demand for heat and hot water, which is approximately 10.7 EJ (or 2,980 TWh).

Case di Luce is an example of sustainable urban regeneration in a densely urbanized area. The site, located in the town of Bisceglie Italy, was a former industrial site that was not in use. All old building structures were demolished and the area cleaned up in order to give way to innovative energy efficiency constructions. Case di Luce is exactly that. The building features low carbon design which leverages seasonal variations of the solar path in order to optimise the comfort of its tenants.

Banking on energy savings Innovative business model pays for Soviet-era flats to become more energy efficient.
Many of the Soviet era apartment blocks in Latvia are in poor technical condition, are corroding rapidly and highly energy inefficient, with little heat insulation and old-fashioned heating systems. But flat-owners in the cities of Valmiera and Cesis are achieving significant improvements to their properties without having to make any payment thanks to an innovative award-winning finance and renovation scheme that began in 2008.
