REHEATEAST – Building local partnerships to reduce the fossil energy demand for district heating systems

The REHEATEAST international project contributes to reducing the demand for fossil energy in district heating and cooling (DHC) systems, and at the same time promotes the use of renewable energy and waste heat through public-private cooperation, resulting in increased greening of energy and transport throughout the Danube region.

The main activities of the project include:

  • identifying and developing a solution that will help reduce the demand for fossil energy fuels
  • identifying and promoting best practices in this area
  • sharing the results of the work regarding the use of geothermal and waste heat
  • raising awareness of sustainable options within DHC systems

Project outputs:

  • development, testing, and support of measures that will help reduce the energy consumption of heated buildings
  • practical outputs that will help individual organizations to reduce the energy consumption of their premises

11 partners from Hungary, Croatia, Romania, Slovenia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Bulgaria participated in the implementation of this project.

The project is supported and implemented within the Interreg Danube Region Program

2021-2027 and is financed by the European Regional Development Fund.
