District Energy: The local solution to global challenges
Climate change, energy security, urban densification, energy poverty, the world is changing and brings along new challenges for industry and policy makers. In this complex environment, some say the climate crisis may have become the mother of all crises… But are we up to the job?
With over 75% of the world’s population living in cities, making urban areas smarter, more sustainable and resilient is a pre-requisite to deliver more prosperous societies. The demand for local and sustainable heating sources has never been higher, and the growing need for cooling is evident across the globe. For District Heating and Cooling, that means an era of both tremendous growth and profound transformation!
DHC networks have now established themselves as critical enablers to foster the development of local energy transitions, but also as a versatile and competitive decarbonisation solution for cities.
The 2023 edition of the International Euroheat & Power Congress will look into the most promising pathways for District Heating & Cooling to play its part in solving the global energy & climate crisis, spurring local change for global impact. It will explore the following topics:
- What are the market prospects for sustainable and efficient DHC systems around the globe?
- How is the current energy crisis reshuffling the deck for DHC companies?
- What are the most promising technologies for DHC decarbonisation and key innovation trends?
- Will Power-to-Heat deliver a concrete market opportunity for DHC?
- What innovative financing schemes and market instruments are needed?
Join us in Torino on 22-24 May 2023, to discover the latest market and technology trends shaping the DHC industry, meet your peers, do business, network… and have fun!
We hope to see many of you there!

What they say about the congress
An extraordinary event that connects experts in the District Heating and Cooling industry and provides relevant content for the future development of this area.
The place to be to shape the future of district energy!
The 38th Euroheat & Power Congress in May was 2017’s top event to see, hear and discuss what is happening in the District Energy sector, especially on a European scale.
ENGIE has been very actively involved in promoting district heating and cooling as the backbone to sustainable cities and regions across the world. They are without a doubt the key players at the heart of the energy transition in a fast changing world. The huge potential of DHC networks lies in developing future-proof, integrated urban solutions and services. It comes as no surprise that one of the key priorities for Euroheat & Power has been, and will surely continue to be, reaching out to cities. A great success, lots of networking and excellent level of plenary and round table speakers. As a long time participant this has been the best congress ever — my humble opinion.
Despite all the challenges we face, Dalkia is convinced that, yes, the future is district energy… We need a strong sector to step up and speak out. We need you to dare greatly and lead boldly. Showing our latest development and using the 38th Euroheat & Power congress to put our new joint venture under the spotlight, was a great and bold decision of Dalkia. We are even more excited for the next congress edition which will be coming to our native land – France – in Nantes in 2019! Looking forward to seeing beyond the limits of the DHC world at the 39th Euroheat & Power congress!
