SUSTAINABLE HEATING AND COOLING WITH „STRATEGO“

A key factor in successfully meeting environmental and climate pro- tection targets is to involve communities and public stakeholders. The aim of the EU-funded STRATEGO project is to close the gap bet- ween European and national policies. The project considers more than 20 towns, communities and regions in Belgium, Austria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Romania, Germany, Italy and the UK. Part- ners from Denmark and Sweden contribute their valuable experience from national developments. In Austria, AIT scientists will work toge- ther with Swedish partners in four selected regions - Vienna, Graz, Großschönau and Lower Austria. AIT contributes its comprehensive expertise in renewable energy and district heating for supporting ci- ties and district heating operators in five Croatian target regions. All relevant actors will be supported in determining local heating and cooling potentials, identifying relevant fields of action, and planning suitable implementation measures. The intensive support offered to these target regions includes measures for knowledge transfer as well as workshops on technical, economic and regulatory aspects such as the potential to lower return temperatures in order to increa- se system efficiencies, technical solutions for connecting renewable energy sources, optimising contractual conditions, and ideas for breaking down regulatory barriers.
