The renewable transformation of heating and cooling is underway but requires innovative next-generation policies. Currently, renewables are estimated to serve just 10 % of the thermal energy demand.
The implementation of district heating and cooling (DHC) systems based on renewable energy sources (RES) is a solution that is spreading, particularly among small communities in search of energy independence.

Energy system integration is the pathway towards an effective, affordable and deep decarbonisation of the European economy.
An integrated and transnational policy framework is needed to maximise the synergies between different energy sectors.
This policy workshop will discuss the current status of energy system integration and what the future might have in store.

In the framework of the innovative COOL DH project, a new LTDH-grid is built in the district in Høje-Taastrup, Denmark. Nowadays, the standard and old district heating systems are replaced by low-temperature district heating (LTDH) or ultra-low-temperature district heating (ULTDH) networks, where the supply temperature will be respectively between 50-60°C in LTDH and below 50°C in ULTDH.

2020 is a year with many firsts: a world-wide pandemic that threatens our society, but also countries stepping up their climate ambitions and the European Union announcing the Climate Neutral Cities mission as well as many opportunities for cities with the Green Deal Policy Framework.
The Celsius Initiative also has some firsts this year: co-creating the forerunner groups together with the Celsius Cities and the first virtual Summit – Celsius Summit 2020
