ReUseHeat aims to promote a cost-effective and technically viable decarbonisation of the current heating and cooling system by demonstrating modular and replicable solutions enabling the recovery and reuse of waste heat available at urban level from different sectors in order to cope with the current and future challenges of climate change.
To foster this kind of interventions, it is of great importance to quantify and locate the urban waste heat potential from non-conventional sources in the countries of the European Union. In this sense, a web-based visualisation tool has been created with real information about the potential of urban excess heat using data collected within the project.
The data collection for increasing the information about urban excess heat is still in progress. We would like to invite relevant actors and stakeholders across the EU to help us gather available information filling in the ReUseHeat survey. By filling in this survey, the data will be part of this open and public tool, contributing to taking a step forward towards the final objective of reaching a more sustainable and decarbonised energy model in Europe.
