Mid term Event

Since 2018, the European project D2GRIDS has promoted 5th generation district heating and cooling (5GDHC) across North-West Europe.  On the 10th November 2021, on the occasion of COP26, the D2Grids team organised the Project mid term event called “On the road to 5GDHC” in order to showcase the first results in developing the concept and progress achieved on the pilot sites. The event was also an occasion to share perspectives to roll-out 5GDHC grids across European cities.

The Conference (10:00 am - 12:30 pm Glasgow time)
Know more about the concept Be inspired by key outcomes from the 5 pilot sites Understand the potential of 5GDHC across Europe
The event introduced the 5GDHC concept, its principles, and its future developments across Europe. Project partners from the 5 pilot sites explained the benefits they’re expecting from 5GDHC on the environmental, financial, and energy aspects. Every city can start a 5GDHC grids project from now! Indeed, it’s an affordable solution and a real opportunity for energy grids in North-West Europe. 
The workshop (2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Glasgow time) - places are limited

Interested in experimenting 5GDHC in your own city?

Following the event, D2Grids project partner Open University hosted a workshop for policy makers on 5th generation district heating and cooling. The workshop included a serious game and key highlights to help attendees start a 5GDHC project.
