Low Temperature District Heating for the Baltic Sea Region

Project activities: LowTEMP addresses municipal representatives responsible for urban and energy issues, heat suppliers, planners, engineers and energy agencies, and provides them with knowledge on technical, organisational and financial strategies to implement low temperature district heating.

Within the LowTEMP project, partners from nine Baltic Sea region countries come together to make the district heating supply in their municipalities and regions, and in other Baltic Sea regions, more sustainable by integrating low temperature district heating solutions. Project activities provide local and regional authorities as well as other institutions responsible for the energy supply, with the know-how and strategic tools on how to plan, finance, install and manage low temperature district heating systems.

Project is supported by Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme.

Project budget: 3 767 755,15 € (incl 3 568 008,15 € ERDF support)
TREA budget: 173 070,00 €

Project duration: 2017−2020

Project aims: Contributing to the reduction of energy waste and greenhouse gas emissions in the Baltic Sea Region by promoting sustainable and efficient energy supply systems.
