    Transforming Dublin with Low-Carbon Heat

    Organiser: Signatories

    Please note the time given is CET.

    District heating provides low-carbon heat for up to 90% of buildings in leading sustainable cities like Copenhagen and Stockholm. With two major schemes in development in Dublin, district heating is now on its way to Ireland's capital, but what is it exactly and how does it work?

    This online event will clearly explain what district heating is and its many benefits, such as less maintenance, lower carbon emissions, hot water on demand (meaning that you never having to worry about leaving the immersion on again!) and a cheaper, alternative way of meeting building regulations.

    This event will be presented by Donna Gartland of the Dublin Energy Agency Codema, who is one of Ireland's leading experts on district heating.This event is aimed at a wide audience of citizens, businesses, developers, elected members and public officials who want to get an introduction into what district heating is, the many advantages it can bring to Dublin, and the role it can play in making Dublin a sustainable, carbon-neutral capital.

    There will also be a chance to ask a range of questions about district heating, such as how to know if your area is suitable, how it compares on cost and the how to go about getting a scheme up and running.

    This event is taking place as part of Dublin Climate Action Week, which runs from 13th-19th September 2021 and is supported through the Horizon 2020 TOMORROW project.
