Enthusiastic Fans – Engaged Citizens as Key to Success

Wednesday 5th May 2021 | 13:45 – 15:00 Business & Operations

Session Description:

We all know that the key to the success for any project, be it district heating development from scratch, upgrading or expansion, is to have citizens on board. But how? We will be unpacking this tricky question in this afternoon discussion: How can we involve the general public and improve the image of DH? What digital tools can be used to empower consumers? Are community-owned DH cooperatives the way to go? A panel of experts with different perspectives on the issue will talk it through and present concrete examples.
