Act!onHeat Training Programme: Session 1 Webinar
The first out of three online sessions of the Act!onHeat Training Programme provided an overview about the workflow of strategic heating & cooling planning in cities. More specifically, the session focused on the first steps to be taken by a municipality, which include the development of a vision, ensuring political commitment, forming an internal working group and establishing an effective engagement strategy for identifying and implementing thermal projects together with local stakeholders. The political and technical insights from leading experts were complemented by the release of the results of a meta-study that Act!onHeat conducted to determine the success factors of H&C planning across Europe.
Certification can be offered on demand. This requires watching the first and second sessions, having participated in session 3, and completing a case study afterwards. Please find the short and advanced versions of the exercise below:
