As Europe contends with the Covid-19 pandemic, exposure to indoor air has been rising, with people spending up to 90% of time indoors. Indoor air quality is a crucial element of resilience against respiratory disease. Insufficiently burned fuel in old stoves and mold often pollute the air making buildings unhealthy to live in. These households are often the most vulnerable to price increases and decreasing job opportunities during the pandemic.

Evidence points out that most vulnerable households face major challenges in the renovation of their homes. Lowest-income families live in most energy-inefficient homes, according to research by the Vlaams Steunpunt Wonen. This means that the cost of reaching renovation energy efficiency standards ends to be highest for those with the least.

District energy is a proven solution for delivering heating, hot water and cooling services through a network of insulated pipes – from a central point of generation to end users. It requires a vast amount of energy that when sourced from fossil fuels, accounts for a major portion of a city’s greenhouse gas emissions. The EU-funded WEDISTRICT project will demonstrate an integrated district heat and cooling (DHC) network combining renewable energy sources, thermal storage and waste heat recovery at low temperatures.
