On the occasion of the 2019 CELSIUS Summit on thermal energy systems of the future, which took place on 17-18 October in ICLEI Member Brussels (Belgium), the KeepWarm project has announced the launch of an online Learning Centre on improving the performance of district heating systems. The platform is open access and free for all stakeholders involved in the planning, provision or use of district heating, who would like to deepen their knowledge or find hands-on information to help support their decision-making processes on thermal systems.
The KeepWarm Learning Centre was primarily designed to support district heating operators working to improve their existing district heating systems. However, information is also available in the KeepWarm Learning Centre for policy-makers, engineers, urban planners, operators of district heating plants or grids, real-estate developers, consumer organisations, and even concerned citizens. It compiles hot resources and cool solutions on district heating in Europe and beyond. This includes a large selection of training materials developed or collected by project partners in seven languages, as well as reports, datasheets, analyses, policy recommendations, business models, funding sources, and project development and implementation steps that are characteristic of various technological solutions.
The resources on the KeepWarm Learning Centre are divided into several chapters, to make browsing easier. These are: Data inputs, Business models and funding, Financing implementation, Technical solutions and cases, Sustainable energy sources, Policy recommendations, Thermal planning tools, and materials in languages other than English.
