DHC planning though is not easy, partially because of the data gaps and the lack of appropriate tools to support local authorities in the process. The EU-funded Horizon 2020 project Hotmaps has the potential to solve these challenges and dramatically speed up DHC planning!

The government should encourage renewable strategies at the local level, cities say. We looked at energy strategies in Polish municipalities and found a lot of initiative, ingenuity and a big desire for change.

By David Donnerer | 733 visits
