Would your city like to decarbonise the heating and cooling system?
Let PLANHEAT support you!
The PLANHEAT project developed a heat planning tool so that your city can map, plan and identify low-carbon, economically viable scenarios!
Serena PagliulaProject Manager of PLANHEAT / Lecce Municipality
The PLANHEAT project has been an opportunity for Lecce Municipality to focus the attention on the importance of energy urban planning, environmental aspects and actions for improving the City sustainability. It has been a driving force beyond the already planned energy actions within the current SEAP, to investigate innovative approach for the energy planning and to concretely simulate new scenarios towards the energy targets of 2030.

The PLANHEAT tool helped the city of Antwerp in putting district heating possibilities on the map. The mapping module provides a good insight in visualizing the high-level opportunities for coupling heating demand and production.

Our City has benefitted from the participation in the PLANHEAT project. One of the benefits is certainly risen awareness on district heating issues that have been bothering us for years because of the old and not very well maintained district heating system that uses mainly natural gas, but in some boilers still heating oil as well. We as the city’s officials have gathered a great deal of information on the possibilities of improvement in district heating efficiency, renewable energy sources, as well as how to better manage lower needs for energy after the energy refurbishment of buildings. The development of the PLANHEAT tool has been a challenge that we have boldly taken to help other European cities on this path as well.

Heat strategy plans are a must for every city that is serious about decarbonising its local energy system! They're a really powerful tool that help cities to make better plans, better decisions and a better future.
