District heating based on local renewable energy sources is becoming more and more an appealing solution for small communities in search of energy independence and of a stable price for their thermal energy supply. Such solutions often foresee a strong and direct involvement of the customers who could even own, at the same time, their heating grid by constituting a cooperative company to run the business. 


Examples of such district heating approach, already quite common in Denmark and Germany, are now spreading quickly around Europe. The webinar will present the most exciting, recent and inspiring stories to show how consumers can take the lead in the transition towards a clean and sustainable future.
