    Objective:
    • Providing an overview on the current market situation for Summerheat in Europe
    • Specifying the framework conditions in the partner countries and bringing out the barriers
    • Identifying necessary developments and implementation strategies for increasing the use of Summerheat as a sustainable technology
    • Removing barriers through targeted actions addressing the key actors on national and international level – elaborating advice for a political strategy
    • Building a cooperation network with the key actors: investors, municipalities, district heating suppliers
    • Implementing a dissemination strategy on international and national level to encourage project development throughout Europe
    Results:

    The direct outcomes for the seven EU regions that participated in the project include:

    • Legislative and political framework descriptions (country reports)
    • Market reports regarding the use of Summerheat (utilisation and potential)
    • Ecological and economic comparison of Summerheat in comparison with conventional air conditioning application
    • One feasibility study for each of th seven regions
    • Interaction with key actors from the supply side (investors, project developers, energy utilities, chiller manufacturers) in expert workshops in the seven regions
    • For energy supply companies: workshops and support in defining strategies for an increased use of Summerheat
    • For policy makers and lobbyists:proposal for effective policies regarding the market conditions for cogeneration technologies and thermal cooling
    • For the general public: articles in respective journals and magazines
    • For international expert audience: three presentations at Euroheat & Power events and workshops
