Project assumes renovation of a significant share of the district heating distribution network, characterized by significant water and energy losses. In 2017 total heated surface was 5,6 million sqm and delivered energy was 1,3 TWh. Energy loses were close to 15% and water loses close to 40%. Project assumes revitalization of 68 km of the network by the mid of 2023. Project brings added value to achievement of national and EU targets related to energy efficiency and GHG reduction as it foresees total energy savings of 0,201798PJ and significant decrease of the water losses.

In "Learning Centre" you can find resources of interest for district heating operators/owners sorted according to the eight larger thematic areas. Some of these resources were used by project partners during training workshops with district heating operators and other relevant actors in their countries. Other materials were developed by related projects who were or are still active in the area of district heating and cooling. Training materials in the languages of project partners.
