Concept:   Increasing energy costs and inadequate energy efficiency progress keep energy poverty at high levels in the EU. Energy poverty in the private rented sector (PRS) represents a particular category and of major concern since it is a phenomenon that is rising.   Due to the difficulty to identify and measure energy-poor households in the PRS and the lack of information and split incentives, it is difficult to adequately address the issue.

Concept:   A company’s energy saving initiatives are influenced mainly by numerous financial and organisational factors. High investment costs slow the adoption of energy efficient measures in SMEs.   The solution is to make it easier for SMEs and to promote energy efficiency as an opportunity. The EU-funded DEESME project will develop a new approach to enable SMEs to manage their energy transition in line with EU policies.

In the framework of the innovative COOL DH project, a new LTDH-grid is built in the district in Høje-Taastrup, Denmark. Nowadays, the standard and old district heating systems are replaced by low-temperature district heating (LTDH) or ultra-low-temperature district heating (ULTDH) networks, where the supply temperature will be respectively between 50-60°C in LTDH and below 50°C in ULTDH.
