CELSIUS

To increase energy efficiency in EU, CELSIUS helps cities across Europe to develop secure, affordable and low carbon district heating and cooling solutions that form part of the city's wider energy system. The focus is on maximising the use of waste heat or secondary heat within a city by capturing and using it in the heating system. Participating... Continue reading
