Draft recommendations for H/C outlook 2050

1 July 2021

This report presents draft recommendations in response to the first initiatives and insights among six local working groups (LWG’s) in six European cities to create actionable and spatially differentiated Transition Roadmaps to decarbonise their heating and cooling sectors in 2050.

If condensed and sorted by main topics, the draft recommendations presented in this report are to investigate the feasibility of district heating in the city if it doesn’t already exist, and, if it exists, investigate how to densify its uptake, how to increase its current connection rates, and how to decarbonise its supply by integration of locally available renewable and excess heat resources.
