The energy and carbon footprint of urban areas will increase with urbanisation and the growing economic activity of urban citizens.
The decarbonisation of cities and city districts presents an imperative and an obvious area of priority.
Districts, in particular, have specific opportunities to drive the decarbonization efforts as they know best about their local needs and locally available infrastructure and resources.
This document (2019) has been prepared in the framework of the ETIP Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC) and discribes how we can reach 100% decarbonised renewable energy districts in the very near future.
The document contains non-technological innovation priorities as well as technological innovation priorities and includes 14 case studies of 100% RE Districts from all over Europe.
