In autumn 2021, the series of LowTEMP 2.0 (online) training seminars, organised by Thermopolis, starts in Finland.

The first LowTEMP 2.0 online seminar in Finland was held on 08th September 2021 in cooperation with the city of Pori. It served more as a promotional event of the LowTEMP project results than as a training seminar. The 37 participants from municipalities and district heating companies from the Satakunta area (Western Finland) focused on the topic “From oil to renewable energy”.

On 27th October 2021, the second LowTEMP 2.0 training seminar was held on sight as a full day event at the Vacational school of Alajärvi for energy advisor students in cooperation with the Energy Agency’s Energy Advisory Service. The nine particpants learned more about the LowTEMP 2.0 training material including more about financial energy strategies and technical aspects but also about  best practice examples that enable District Heating stakeholders to realise Low Temperature District Heating.

In the coming months, further trainings with students and municipalities will focus on the use of waste/surplus heat and energy supply systems in the Baltic Sea Region as well as possible financing structures for Low Temperature District Heating projects.
