Supporting the achievement of EU's 20-20-20 goals, CELSIUS is a district heating and cooling demonstration and knowledge transfer project coordinated by the City of Gothenburg. Including partners from the triple helix of cities, energy/ utility companies and academia, the consortium is made up of 20 organisations from 5 cities: City of Gothenburg, City of Rotterdam, City of London, City of Cologne and City of Genua.
The CELSIUS project aims to increase the deployment and operation of intelligent district heating and cooling systems across Europe and support cities to develop secure, affordable and low carbon heat supplies for its citizens and businesses. As part of this the CELSIUS project wants to maximise the use of waste or secondary heat that is produced within a city by capturing and then using it in its district heating systems.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 314441.
