Smart networks 
integrating renewable and
waste energy sources


The overall objective of REWARDHeat is to demonstrate a new generation of low-temperature district heating and cooling networks, which will be able to recover renewable and waste heat, available at low temperature. Read more...

Expected Results

REWARDHeat will demonstrate cost-effective solutions for DHC systems, which can satisfy at least 80% of the energy demand of the system with locally-available renewable energy and waste heat sources. Read more...

Demonstration Networks and partners

The REWARDHeat project is coordinated by EURAC Research, based in Italy, and involves a total of 28 partners from 10 European countries.
Partners include industrial organisations, utilities, SMEs, research organisations, universities and international associations.
