We hope to see you at the CELSIUS Summit in Brussels
The CELSIUS Summit is on its way and we look forward to seeing you on November 21 at the Committee of the Regions, in Brussels!

Marking the official launch of CELSIUS 2.0, we are honoured to receive political representatives from 11 member cities and are looking forward to hearing their keynote speeches. Centred around four specific subjects – stakeholder interaction, end-user engagement, district cooling and investments – the city representatives will share their story, ambitions, needs and challenges they face as they strive to accelerate their transition to sustainable and smart heating and cooling solutions.

In this month’s newsletter you will get a brief preview of what will be discussed at the conference. Starting with an article about Pinjacker-Nootdorp, one of the largest greenhouse horticultural municipalities in the Netherlands, that is pooling its resources with Rotterdam, one of the largest harbours in Europe, and a horticulture company to ensure long-term supply of sustainable energy for their businesses and citizens. Followed by an article on the importance of district cooling and then a video about the FED showroom, local marketplace for electricity, district heating and cooling is being developed at the Chalmer’s campus at Johanneberg, in Gothenburg. At last, but not least, don’t miss the latest version of the agenda for the event.

We hope to see you next month in Brussels!
Pijnacker-Nootdorp: Leader in energy transition

Key projects are the existing geothermal network in Pijnacker and the heat cooperation in the region Oostland.

Cooling is all around us
Cooling is all around us. Our food and drinks can’t get produced, transported or shelfed without it. Our industry would stop running, data centres would stop processing and working and living would get unbearable. Yet ‘cooling’ is in many discussions and considerations less than a little sibling of heating.
Even when just looking at the built environment, the numbers speak a clear and alarming language. A recent JRC study found that the potential cooling demand in the residential sector could increase by factor 10 by 2050 causing an additional capacity demand of 210 GW.
