Bogusław Regulski - Chamber of Commerce Polish District Heating
The supply of heat through district energy systems is a common technology used by local municipalities across Europe, but far from all are efficient and many of the local actors’ struggle with the challenge of transforming these systems into efficient systems. Polish district heating needs modernisation, this is both important to improve air quality and reach the European climate goals. How can municipality district heating systems be upgraded and what are the benefits compared with other heating sources traditionally used in Poland? What are the available financing options and existing support programmes? The event focused on answering these questions and presented best-practice local and international examples and business models, to learn about effective solutions from other countries which could be implemented in Poland.
