Low Temperature District Heating for the Baltic Sea Region


Project is supported by Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme.

Project budget: 3 767 755,15 € (ERDF contribution 3 568 008,15 €)

Project duration: 2017−2020

Project aims: Contributing to the reduction of energy waste and greenhouse gas emissions in the Baltic Sea Region by promoting sustainable and efficient energy supply systems.

Project activities: Within the LowTEMP project, partners from nine Baltic Sea region countries come together to make the district heating supply in their municipalities and regions, and in other Baltic Sea regions, more sustainable by integrating low temperature district heating solutions. Project activities provide local and regional authorities as well as other institutions responsible for the energy supply, with the know-how and strategic tools on how to plan, finance, install and manage low temperature district heating systems. This shall lead to the restructuring of the existing district heating systems towards future sustainable low temperature district heating grids. More efficient energy supply systems mean energy saving, better economy and cleaner air in Baltic Sea region.
