The INDIGO Project
The main objective of INDIGO is the development of a more efficient, intelligent, and cheaper generation of District Cooling (DC) systems by improving system planning, control and management involving all components and levels of a DC system. INDIGO goes beyond the conceptual idea of an optimised District Cooling system and aims to develop specific tools that would provide more confidence and thus more openness to DC systems deployment and use. INDIGO is conformed by 6 partners from 5 different countries: Spain, Finland, Switzerland, Ireland and Italy.
The RESCUE project
The project RESCUE (REnewable Smart Cooling for Urban Europe) aims to address the key challenges for the further development and implementation of district cooling using low and zero carbon emitting sources, thereby enabling local communities to reap the environmental and economic benefits of this energy efficiency technology.
The CELSIUS project
A platform of networking and knowledge, CELSIUS takes a holistic approach to overcome technical, social, financial and political barriers to district heating and cooling solutions. CELSIUS supports committed European cities to maximise the utilisation of its primary and secondary energy resources in an integrated way that minimises its operational costs and carbon emissions while maximising its energy efficiency.
The STRATEGO project
The STRATEGO project aims at helping national and local authorities develop enhanced Heating & Cooling plans. The objectives of the project are to provide tangible support in developing National Heating and Cooling Plans, assist local authorities in evaluating their Heating and Cooling potential, find their priority area for intervention, and identify concrete projects that should be implemented.
The Ecoheatcool project
Ecoheatcool was a pioneering project which analysed European district heating and cooling markets. It provided a tool for policy makers and a series of policy recommendations. The project became a reference for the district heating and cooling sector; it enabled the development of a vision and quantification of the benefits that the district heating and cooling sector can bring to achieving the EU environmental policy objectives.
