The objective of the ReUseHeat project is to demonstrate pioneering, advanced, modular and replicable systems that make it possible to reuse the available excess heat at urban scale.
ReUseHeat will address technical and non-technical barriers to mobilize heat recovery projects and investments in urban environments throughout Europe. Four large-scale demonstrations will be carried out to show the technical and economic feasibility of recovering / reusing excess heat in data centers (Brunswick), urban sewage water networks (Nice), cooling systems in hospitals (Madrid) and a metro station (Berlin).
- To demonstrate advanced, modular and replicable systems to reuse the excess heat available at urban scale
- To create awareness and a demand for investment in urban waste heat recovery
- To promote the involvement of various agents in order to accept this type of investment
- To accelerate the market penetration and facilitate implementation through a handbook
- Mapping of urban heat recovery potential in the EU
- New business models and contractual schemes
- Implementation of 4 recovery solutions in urban environments adapted to different types of sources: data centers, hospitals, U-railway, wastewater.
- Monitoring and control systems
- Performance and impact evaluation of project demonstrations
- Dissemination, communication and exploitation of results
4 excess heat recovery demonstrations in real urban environments: data centers, hospitals, U-railway and wastewater infrastructures.

Energy systems projects:
The objective of the Cervera HySGRID+ network is to strengthen the technological capacity of Spanish Technology Centres with a high level of complementarity and promote their solid cooperation with the ultimate aim of researching and developing new technological solutions that facilitate the creation of local energy positive balance communities (LEPC)
The overall objective of REWARDHeat is to demonstrate a new generation of low-temperature district heating and cooling (DHC) networks, which will be able to recover renewable (RES) and residual (WH) heat available at low temperatures.
The SunHorizon project aims to demonstrate that combining technologies (TPs) such as solar panels and managed heat pumps with a controller with predictive, proactive and self-learning capabilities saves energy.
The objective of the GIRTER project is to develop an intelligent energy management tool and aid in the operation of district heat and cold networks
